The Feature for Regular (270cc) Micro Sprint cars was as close as dirt track racing can be at The Greenwood Valley Action Track near Millville on Saturday night.

Pleasant Mills, seventh was Sean "Hollywood" Good, also from Mt. Pleasant Mills. The rest of the top ten were Ross Perchak, Hazelton, Joel VanBuskirk, Selinsgrove, and Jason Rice, New Tripoli.
