1:00 to 1:20 pm - ChampTruck Heat 4

Wow, what a race!!! #88 Mike started in last place, but passed #3 in the first lap. Then in an incredible display of driving skill #88 out braked two trucks (#14 and #23) at the end of the straightaway which gave him the inside of the turn allowing him to move ahead. #88 then passed #31 moving into 2nd place! In the next lap #88 passed #17 to take the lead. #88 Mike held that position for the checkered flag. The final top three were #88, #14 and #3.

3:00 to 3:35 pm - ChampTruck Podium Race

#88 Mike started from the back of the field since he had the highest points total for the weekend. By turn 4 #88 had passed #3 who then hit #88's rear bumper, spun out and stalled (evidenced by green paint on #88's rear bumper). #88 passed #23 then #31 in the second lap, placing him in third. In the fifth lap he passed #14, then #17 for first place! The yellow flag came out while a piece of sheet metal was removed from the track. This brought the field closer together, but no positions changed after the green. The final finish for the weekend was #88 first, #14 second, and #17 third. Congratulations to all the winners.
