Saturday, September 15 at the Indianapolis Speedrome - - - Billy George proved yet again that he's one of the toughest racers ever to hit the pavement at Indy's Eastside speedway. In the Speedrome's annual "Late Model vs. Modifieds showdown George beat the best of the Speedrome's two fastest classes. The 50-Lap two-class event started past Late Model champion Jack Dossey, Jr. on the front row with 25-year veteran George Sutton and Modified champions Billy George and Jim Begley right behind. George quickly dispatched Dossey and held off Begley and a doggedly determined Marshall Emberton, Jr. for the win over the 23-car field.

The traditional 50-Lap Team Figure-8 event provided a mix of Speedrome Late Models, Stocks and Bomber Figure-8 cars for an old-fashioned battle of supremacy on the "left-right" circuit. Dossey triumphed with the win and also picked the right team as Late Model drivers Kenny Stewart, Charlie Reed, Bomber Figure-8's Scott Settles and occasional Stocker Dave Lewis drove hard for the team win as well.

Surprising performances from rookie Mark Daily, Jr. and Robert Downey, Jr.'s first Top 10 finish gave the "WildCARds" team their best finish of second. The "WildCARds' are the unpicked cars in the team event that had four of the Speedrome's top Late Model racers choosing four cars each.

Kevin Williams claimed his first career win in the Stock's 25-Lap Oval Main while Scott Tabor claimed the Roadrunner "A" Main and his cousin Jerry Givens snagged the "B".
