Winning Quotes:

“It’s nice, takes a little salt out of the wound. We’re all racers, that’s in the past, move on.” – Jon McKennedy

“It’s been a little bit of a lull here, so it’s good to be back in victory lane.” – Chris Pasteryak

 

On the Move:

After finishing 11th in the first feature, Chris Pasteryak took advantage of an invert for the second feature and took the win.

 

Biggest Loser:

Geoff Gernhard and Donnie Lashua got together on Lap 2 of the second feature and hit the wall.
