In the Big Enduro division, the red flag flew 2 times in the 50-lap feature, once for a roll over by Hudson’s John Curtis, and the second time for fluid on the track. Steve Haining of Newport, and Alvin MacNevin of Clifton battled for the top spot, but it was Haining that would earn the win, with MacNevin second, and David Grant of Hermon in third.

The green flag kicked off the race, with a field of 38 cars in the Little Enduro division. Hancock’s Ken Ogden flipped over his ride on the first lap drawing out the first red flag, and a two-car collision at lap 20 drew out the second red. Richard Burrill of Ellsworth took home the win, with Darrin Durrell of Newburg second and Stockton Springs’ Duane Seekins in third.

Lindsey Seekins (Duane Seekins’ Daughter) started on the outside pole for the feature race in the Ladies division and picked up the checkered flag, in the third feature race of the night to feature a roll over. Billie Allen of Winterport took second, and Kayla Allen of Penobscot crossed the line for third.
