Friday - June 8 - -- - Jim Begley stays on top of the Carmel Sod Modifieds division with a win over a hard-charging Doug Greig, series runner-ups Billy George and Billy Boyer and a strong run from sophomore Bruce Newlin, Jr. Doug Greig came back to win the Race City Auto Sales Legends Cars main chased by David Sutton, Jimmy Kirby and another young lion, Chad Smith. The Bandoleros main went to points leader Mike Hadley. A tearful Charlie Potts dedicated his first win to his father in the Yardarm Bomber Figure-8 following a side-by-side duel with Scott Settles.
