Weyant took his pole starting spot to the front and ran away from the rest of the field in a green to checkers finish.

Brent Burrows of Lewistown who had fast time came in 3rd spot with Havana’s Gedd Ross in 4th place. The big track at Sycamore on Sat. night was smooth and fast as the winged cars were turning laps in the 14 second bracket. A packed house of 1500 fans enjoyed a night of great racing at the historis facility just East of Sycamore. The format of 2 heat races were ran with the 1st heat lined up by times with the fast time on the pole and the 2nd heat inverted with the cars running lined up by their qualifying times. Each heat was like the old days of kart racing with points given by finish for each heat and the total for the 2 heats was the line up order for the Speedway Motors A-Main event. With Brent setting fast time he started on the pole of heat 1 and Dave Baugh on the outside. Dave would move to the front and lead all 8 laps with Korey Weyant 2nd Gedd Ross 3rd and Brent Burrows 4th. Rookie Robby McQuinn would lose a motor on lap 4 and retire for the night. Heat 2 inverted would find Jake Sollenberger and Brent Burrows in the front row. Brent would lead until lap 2 when Korey Weyant slipped by in turn 4 and go on to the win. Brent would finish 2nd with Dave Baugh 3rd and Gedd in 4th.
