At the start of the Seafoam 25 lap NASCAR Late Model feature Jackson Lewis (Elko New Market, MN) powered past Jeff Partington to take charge of the race. Steve Bachman (Bangor, WI) broke into the top three on lap six, then shot past Tony Bagstad (Westby, WI) to take over the runner-up spot on lap seven. Bachman tracked down Lewis over the next few laps before charging around him for the lead just before halfway. Bachman would have to contend with new track record holder Dan Fredrickson in the last stages. Coming from 12th position Fredrickson methodically began to maneuver through traffic and took over second from Lewis with 11 laps left. Fredrickson was eating up the deficit on Bachman when he tangled with the lapped car of Pete Carlson (Sparta, WI). Fredrickson was sent to the back but had too much damage to his nose to continue. Bahcman pulled away from Bagstad on the final restart to see the checkered flag first. After the race Bachman said “We were having trouble getting our previous set up to work on the car. We thrashed at it all night and finally got it right when it mattered.”
Sam Niles (Holmen, WI) made a daring move around Justin Berg (Bangor, WI) with three laps remaining in the Sportsmen feature. Niles then had to keep Bob Fort (Fountain City, WI) in check over the last two laps to give the defending track champion his first win of the year.
