Dugger set fast time with a lap of 13.525-seconds, edging out Marty Griffin. He then won the heat for the fast qualifiers, which set his sights on a sweep.

Chase Lane took the early lead in the feature but Dugger was not to be denied. On the second lap he got inside of Lane going down the back straight and pulled away from the competition.

The only thing that slowed down Dugger’s charge to the checkered flag was a caution flag on lap 16 when Larry Fritz drifted high in turn three and forced Darrell Brown into the turn three outside retaining wall.

On the Aerco Heating and Air Conditioning restart John Robbins challenged Dugger on the outside, but Dugger maintained the advantage entering turn three.

At the checkers Dugger won by 1.7-seconds over Robbins with Nate Shrout, Griffin and Colby Lane rounding out the top five.

Dugger led the entire distance in the first heat for the fast qualifiers followed by Griffin, Shrout and Chase Lane.

The second heat win wen to Robbins, who also led from start to finish with Brown coming home in second. Colby Lane, Eddie Richardson and Fritz rounded out the top five.
