On opening night, Limited Late Model driver Frankie Dominick Jr. needed some mid-race help to get past James Frazier Jr. to win. Friday night, he had Frazier and the field covered.
Frazier Jr. put his car on the pole with a 13.59 lap, tenths ahead of Dominick Jr. When the green flag flew, however, it was Dominick Jr. leading the first lap, and every subsequent lap as well. Frazier Jr. would give chase for the first half of the race until mechanical problems would put him behind the wall for the night.
A late spin by Andrew Grady would cause confusion on the track, as Dominick Jr. had already taken the white flag and Wake County Speedway rules state that the field races to the checkered flag. Will Roland, who was running second, slowed up behind Dominick Jr., allowing Cory Walker to drive by and take second. Roland would finish third, with Grady and Kirby Morrow rounding out the top five.
Trevor Noles sat on the pole for the Pro Modified 30 lap event, with 2009 track champion and current points leader Justin Jones starting on his outside. Jones rode behind Noles for the first 10 laps until Noles’ machine began to get loose. Jones’s lap 10 pass would be the only pass for the lead, and despite a late push by Noles, it would be Justin Jones winning his second race in as many weeks. Noles finished second, a full lap ahead of Dennis Capss, who came home third.
In Four Cylinder stocks, it was father and son on the front row with Wilbur Duke on the pole, and his son Jesse on his outside. When the green flag flew, though, it was Jesse setting the pace. Todd Langdon, in his return to the Four Cylinder division, quickly made his way to second, never letting Jesse Duke out of his sights. Through lapped traffic, Langdon closed the gap between himself and Duke to a mere one car length, but that is as close as he would come to taking the lead. At the end of the 25 laps, Jesse Duke would be the winner, with Langdon finishing second, and Jeremy Ottaway scoring his second third place finish in two races.
Alex Fleming knows his way around the .23 mile Wake County Speedway, but mostly in a Super Late Model. Friday night he would show his muscle in UCARs. Barry McCaskill and Matt Grimes sat on the front row, and would run first and second throughout the first 16 laps. Contact between McCaskill and Grimes would spin both drivers, putting teammates Fleming and Robert Arch to the front of the field. McCaskill would come charging back from the back of the field, getting past Arch for second, before running out of time in the 25 lap event and having to settle for second. Fleming would take the checkered flag, with McCaskill and Arch finishing second and third.
In Legends, Billy Gomez Jr. reasserted his muscle at WCS, leading every lap of the 25 lap race, holding off Kyle Resco and Kenzie Ruston for second and third. In Mini Cup, Lawson Flood would lead from flag to flag, fending off a late charge from Blake Raynor. JJ Smith would take third.
