Royce Cornett led the entire 35 lap distance in the Late Model division Saturday night at Flat Rock Speedway, his second win of the season. Cornett jumped into the lead from his pole position and wasn't challenged throughout the event. Lapped traffic allowed Chad Guinn to catch Royce's yellow and blue #8 late in the event but Guinn's purple #02 was no match for Cornett tonight.

The race was stopped only one time when the red flag flew on lap two for an accident between Ron Allen, Steve Cronenwett, Len Fritz and Bill Steinhilber. Only Steinhilber was able to return to the action and he finished seventh.

The A Main Street Stock division again provided the best racing of the evening bringing the fans to the edge of their seats. Taking the lead from polesitter John Sullivan on lap 2, Rick Knowles proceeded to distance himself from the rest of the field. Ken Knight worked his way to the front and caught Knowles with three laps remaining. Knight hung to the outside of Knowles on the final laps with Knowles black #52 inching out the purple #61 of Knight at the finish line.

Larry Hall started on the pole in the B division feature and battled Mo Volckaert and Randy DeMaggio for the entire 15 lap event. Hall came home victorious for the second time this season in this division.

Dennis Whisman won yet another Figure 8 feature, his fifth of the season. Bob Studt raced tightly with the blue #1 early in the event but lost sight of the leader midway when Whisman caught a break at the intersection.
