The event featured the Buckeye super sprints; the modifieds, Ohio stocks, street stocks and hobby stocks.

The street stock feature was relatively clean, as the lone caution flag of the race came on lap 13 when Mikala Engle came to a stop in turn 3. On the restart, Cody Rose held his lead with a three-car length advantage over Logan Cooper. Rose took the checkered flag, making it a clean sweep by winning the dash, heat and feature race.

The super sprints followed for a 25-lap feature.

With eight laps to go, the battle for second was on as Kevin Mingus took Zack Gibson for position, and was closing in on leader Frank Neill. Mingus tried the high and low sides of the track, but Neill held strong.

But with two laps to go, the relentless Mingus grabbed the lead and held on to take the checkered flag.

In the 25-lap modifieds feature, little change was made in the running order until about five laps to go. With two laps left, Stephen Klinect made his move and took the lead as Tyler Shullick was also able to get past previous leader Joe Shannon for second.

Klinect finished off the race unchallenged for the win.

The 12-lap Ohio stock feature saw Joe Borczuch take the lead from the pole, followed by Clayton Karl and Jerry Karl. Jerry Karl took the lead on lap 6 and held on for the remaining laps to take the checkered flag.

In the hobby stock 12-lap feature race, Austin White started third and wasted no time in taking command of the lead. Devin Gibson ran second followed by Kelly Lilie. White had a half straightway lead which increased as the laps continued.

White went unchallenged with a comfortable lead to take the checkered flag and sweep the division as the fast qualifier, dash, heat and feature winner.
