A modest eleven entries registered for the Weekly Racing Series program at the 4/10 mile oval. Ricky started his outing by charging from fifth to finish second in heat race action, locking him into the sixth starting spot for the finale. In the main event Weiss took control from Mike Balcaen on lap three. With laps winding down, Weiss began to show smoke out the back of his entry. He slowed up a little, allowing second running Balcaen to close the gap. The duo battled hard in the three remaining laps, swapping the lead multiple times. In the end despite his mechanical issues, Weiss was able to hold off the veteran and win his second straight feature at the oval. Steffen Snare, Mike Martin, and Shane Edginton rounded out the top five finishers.
