Bobby Wilberg won the 30 lap feature for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Models.

Brady Liddle and Kevin Knuese brought the field to the green flag.  Liddle jumped out to the early advantage with John Beale up to second on lap 2 followed by Jon Reynolds Jr., Bobby Wilberg, and Zack Riddle.  Liddle and Beale put some distance between themselves and the field.  On lap 7 Beale powered his way to the inside of Liddle coming out of turn four to take the lead.  Wilberg was quickly up to join the leaders as the three broke out to a ten car length advantage over the fourth and fifth place cars of Reynolds Jr. and Riddle.

Wilberg worked his way down low coming out of turn three to take second from Liddle on lap 13.  Beale continued his leading ways, but Wilberg was chipping away little by little closing the gap with each lap.  With ten laps to go the lead was one car length and on lap 21 Beale drifted up the track coming out of turn two giving the lead to Wilberg.

From there it was all Wilberg who quickly built up a six length advantage over Beale.  Behind the top two a great battle was taking place for third between Liddle and Riddle.

But there was no denying Wilberg who cruised to victory lane for the win.  Beale, Liddle, Riddle, and Knuese rounded out the top five.

“This is just amazing.  This is our first new motor in fifteen years,” said Wilberg from victory lane.

Bobby Wilberg won the six lap RA Heating and Air Conditioning Dash. Ten lap heat races were won by Brady Liddle and Kevin Knuese. Zack Riddle set fast time with a lap of 18.617.
