Rick Knowles continued his winning ways Saturday night at Flat Rock Speedway. Jeff Carnacchi won his first career A main street stock feature event, while Dennis Whisman was victorious in the Figure 8 division for the first time in 1999.

Rick Knowles started eighth, after picking up fast time earlier in the evening (11.530). Rookie of the Year candidate Craig Pace jumped into the lead on the start and led the first 23 laps. Knowles whipped around him on the high side to take the lead and the win. Pace held off a hard charging Bill Steinhilber for second, a career best finish for Pace.

Jeff Carnacchi started on the outside pole and drove past early leader Brian Ausmus on lap 10 to take over the lead. He was pressured the remaining 15 laps by Tom Selmi and Ron Allen but held fast for his first career feature win. Randy DeMaggio won the B main, while Jim Kourtakis won the C main event.

Dennis Whisman held off the challenges of both Randy Cronenwett and Jeremy Miller to take home the 20 lap feature victory in the Figure 8 division. A lap 3 accident in the intersection eliminated the cars of Danny Leppen, Scott Bunge and Fred Spaulding Jr.
