Chris Grbac and DJ Hunt brought the field to the start of the 30-lap contest with Hunt opening up a nice half straightaway lead over the first 5 laps. Hunt withstood one restart but by lap 8 the Modified Rookie had heavy pressure coming from behind as newcomer Louden Reimert and 5-time winner Billy Pauch Jr. were making quick work of the competition behind him.  It took a couple laps for Reimert to find a way by Hunt, all the while holding off Pauch.  As Reimert grabbed the lead Pauch Jr. followed him by and continued to hound Reimert, now for the lead. Suddenly from seemingly out of nowhere, Van Horn burst onto the scene and raced side by side with Pauch for second. This battle was waged on Reimert’s back bumper for 4 laps, with Van Horn and Pauch trying to one up each other on every turn. Twice the duo attempted to make it three wide for the lead, but Reimert was up to each challenge.  Finally on lap 18, Van Horn got a tremendous bite on the low side of turn two and shot by both Pauch and leader Reimert.  Once in front DVH pulled away, as his car got faster with each passing lap.  With Van Horn out in front, Pauch picked up his battle with Reimert, trying every groove over the next 10 laps to no avail.  Finally as the field was shown the “two to go” signal Pauch found just enough room and squeezed by Reimert’s Fleuer #16. Van Horn cruised to the victory as Pauch Jr. earned a hard fought runner-up finish. Tenth starter Reimert settled for third, making a lot of fans at NES in the process, with his hard work and smooth driving throughout the 30 lap affair, as he got onto the podium for the first time in just his fifth start. Mike Gular, who looked to be the fastest car on the track in the opening laps, fought his way back to finish 4th, as he quickly closed on the leaders over the final five laps. Mike Butler crossed the line fifth for his second top five in the last 3 races.

26 cars took the green flag in the Vahlco Wheels Modified 40 lapper with PJ Oliver grabbing the lead over Chris Grbac.  Oliver was looking dominant in the early going as he opened up a sizable lead until two consecutive cautions flew on lap 6 & 8 to slow the action.   Oliver continued to lead when racing resumed as Rick Laubach took over the runner-up spot. Laubach quickly had his hands full as Oliver drove away from the field again, with 11th starter Grosso already challenging for second. Grosso quickly moved into second, bringing 2018 track champ David Van Horn with him, and took up the chase after Oliver who was more than a half straightaway in front. Grosso took only 5 laps to catch the leader and on lap 17 made what proved to be the winning pass.  As Grosso assumed command, last week’s winner Billy Pauch Jr. and point leader Mike Gular were hot on his heels and also passed Oliver.  This duo traded second spot back and forth a couple times as Grosso proved too strong, even thru two more restarts.  Grosso cruised to his third win of the season ahead of Pauch Jr. and Gular, with Van Horn coming home fourth. Some confusion occurred on the final lap when chief starter Terry Branson was hit by an object causing him to prematurely throw the checkered flag. He quickly realized his mistake and switched back to the white flag, however not before fifth place runner Dominic Buffalino, who had been battling to hold off a fast Louden Reimert, had seen it. This resulted in fifth place switching on the final circuit. Track officials, upon reviewing what had happened, decided that both drivers would be credited with finishing fifth in the final rundown, and would both receive fifth place money and points for the event.  Thankfully flagger Branson was uninjured. Mike Gular remains the point leader by just 2 points over Billy Pauch Jr.

Protinick and Wall brought the field to the start of the extra distance event with Protinicj grabbing the early advantage. Wall chased after him but Protinick was hooked up and had every one covered thru the opening laps. Sixth starter Anthony Tramontana quickly moved into third and methodically ran down the front running duo challenging Wall for second by lap 12. As Wall and Tramontana battled they quickly closed in on the leader and the fans suddenly had a three car battle for the lead to watch. Tramontana grabbed second from Wall and almost got by Protinick with the same move, when suddenly Wall came back by both of them for the lead. Lapped traffic began to come into play as Tramontana finally slipped by Protinick and went back after Wall.  STSS Crate winner Johnny Bangs and the winner of the race the last 2 years Ryan Simmons now entered the top five and were battling for fourth half of a straightaway behind the leaders. At the front Wall held off the persistent Tramontana thru lapped traffic to post his 4th win of the season. Tramontana was a close second with Bangs grabbing third in the closing laps.  Protinick finished his great run in fourth followed by Simmons.  5-time winner Justin Grosso, Tom Princiotta, Ryan Heim, Will Dupree and Jon Meyer completed the top ten,
