In both classes, it was the second win of the season for the winningest driver in DIRT Motorsports history. Both victories for Johnson came in the Jeff Rudalavage owned, WPC Associates sponsored cars.
Ryan Richardson raced out to the early lead at the start of the Riverside Inn DIRT Big Block Modified feature race. Jeff Isabell took the top spot away from Richardson on lap two.

Alan Johnson, Tim Fuller, Matt Sheppard, Pat Ward and Dale Planck raced in positions sixth through tenth respectively at the halfway stage.

Jimmy Phelps took the top spot away from Romano on lap-22. Phelps would only lead two circuits as Johnson took command of the field on lap-24. Decker moved into the second position on lap-25. Decker made several runs on Johnson, but was never able to take away the lead. Decker had to settle for second with Ward, Jimmy Phelps and Sheppard completing the top five feature finishers.
