In the IMCA Sport Compacts feature, it was Brandon Lambert lead the first three laps before Bill Whalen Jr. sneaked by on lap 4. Whalen appeared to be heading to the win until Merv Chandler worked his way past Lambert on lap six and then set his sights on Whalen. Whalen and Chandler battled it out for the lead but on the last lap it was Chandler crossing the stripe first to take his fifth at SIS. Whalen finish second, Lambert was third, John Whalen came home fourth and Duayne Herb finish fifth.
Brad Pinkerton grabbed the lead early in the Budweiser IMCA Stock Car feature, but the yellow came out on lap seven when Donnie Pearson came to a stop in turn 2. Pinkerton had to deal with Rich Vogt and Corey Stout on the restart and two laps later, it was Vogt grabbing the lead. Vogt and the field saw the yellow come out on lap 11 when Ryan Leeman had his power plant expire and on the restart, Nathan Wood got by Pinkerton for second. Vogt held of challenges from Wood to go on to take the win. Todd Reitzler, who started 16th, got by Wood on the last lap to finish second. Stout finished fourth and Kris Walker finished fifth
In the Pyramid Graphics and Sports IMCA Sport Mods 30-lap feature, which was split up into two 15-lap segments with a 10 minute pit stop in the middle. Tyler Gross grabbed the early lead, but just after the completion of lap 3, Ben Kates and Eric Flander came together in turn 3 forcing an early exit for Kates. Gross continued to lead until coming to the completion of lap 12 when he experienced troubles and  pulled in handing the lead over to Glenn Gladson. Brett Lowry grabbed the lead from Gladson a lap later. Lowry led until the caution waved for the mid-way pit stop.
