Friday was season championship night at Toledo Speedway. First career championships were won by Don St. Denis (Super Late Model), Ron Allen (Sportsman) and Paul Duffin (Factory Stocks). Ken Ahlgren won his second consecutive championship title in the Figure 8 division.

The super late model race was especially exciting as the 18-car field completed the fast paced 50-lap event without a caution flag. Don St. Denis led the entire distance, setting a 50-lap track record of 13:09.59.

Brian Foster won his first career feature event in the 30-lap sportsman feature. Ron Allen started on the pole and looked like he would add to his seven feature wins. However, a slowly deflating tire on the lap 23 restart dropped him to a fifth place finish, one lap down.

The Figure 8 25-lap feature was also a caution free event with Jeremy Miller leading from start to finish.

Paul Duffin outpaced Pete Shrake to win his third Factory Stock feature of the season.
