Jay Mallory took the checkered flag in the main event for the PC Works DIRTcar Sportsman on Sunday night at the Humberstone Speedway, while Dennis Lunger Jr. scored the win in the Pinty’s RUSH Late Models. Jason Fontaine picked up his third JC Auto Street Stock feature win of the season, and Craig Vlasic took home the win in the Mike Knapp Ford Pro 4 Trucks. Rob Goulding took the checkered in the Cosco Haulage Mini Stock feature, and Mark Shadwell won the Vintage Car feature.

Mallory and Darrell Farraway brought the PC Works DIRTcar Sportsman to the green flag for their 25-lap feature with Mallory showing the way from the get-go, pulling away from Cody McPherson to score his second win on the season.

Travis Martineau and Colton Ledingham led the field of Pinty’s RUSH Late Models to the green flag for their 20-lap feature event, with Martineau showing the way ahead of Rob Pietz and Dennis Lunger Jr. in the top three. Lunger moved into second on Lap 5, and completed the pass on his teammate Martineau for the race lead and the win on Lap 6.

Vince Fargnoli and Fontaine made up the front row for the JC Auto Street Stocks feature event, with Fontaine quickly picking up the lead over Bill Bleich Jr. Bleich took over the lead on Lap 3, but a Lap 13 spin erased the lead he built up. On the restart, Fontaine regained the lead, with Bleich retaking the lead on Lap 17. Fontaine took the lead back on the last lap off Turn 2 and went on to score the win, his third of the season.
