The event lived up to expectations with twenty lead changes between five different drivers. Pit stop excitement, tire changes and confusion added to the overall picture painted for the first event.
Brown Josh Nichols, Burt and Jason Myers and young gun Spencer Davis all took turns leading the 125 lapper, with Brown and Burt Myers being at the point for the bulk of the laps but not one of the top five cars was able to gain a clear advantage. Caution flew on lap 19 for a front stretch spin by Jeremy Mayfield. Mayfield recovered and posted a solid finish in his first Modified event. Another brief caution when Renee Dupuis tagged the turn one wall did little to interrupt the action. The engine in Brian Weber's car exploded entering turn three bringing out the final caution of the night. Cale Gale's car failed to re-fire after the caution ending his night at the same time.
