Ladies Night at the Wyoming County International Speedway would start off with the Grandpa Dog 4 Cylinder division starting 13 of the 16 registered cars present this evening. Unfortunately for Nick Robinson, Nick Galusha, and Mike Picirilli they would not make the show after sustaining damage and mechanical failures during practice and heats.
The #54 of Briar Dils would take the early lead from the 5th place starting position and would quickly start expanding his lead over the remainder of the field. He would have about a straightaway lead over the #3 of Jason Anasiewiez until car #41 of Joey Bevacqua would spin while riding in the 4th place position.
On the restart, Dils would chose the outside pole and lead for one more lap before Anasiewiez would overtake him and the two would play leap frog until the #3 would blow a tire and unfortunately take the third place car of Dave Heimes to the wall in turn 4 while trying to get out of the way of oncoming traffic. This would put the #51 of Greg Moldt on the front row for the second and final restart and he would overtake Dils with just 3 laps remaining. He would ride it out for the win with Dils coming in second and the #14M of Matt Hurlburt rounding out the top 3. Jonathan Klamut in the #7 would take home the Stock division win.

For the second race of the evening we would see the Super Stocks hit the track for their 25 lap event. The Super Stocks are known to put on a show and they didn’t disappoint tonight. Right at the drop of the green we would see the #02 of Justin Myers, the #12 of Chase Williams, and the #6 of Jim Loffredo all charge from the outside row and end up three wide going into turn two. Myers would take the early lead and hold on while the #11k of Dave Krawczyk was charging through the field trying to come out on top for the second week in a row.
Krawczyk would make his way to the rear bumper of the #12 machine and strategically maneuvered his way around him after riding in third place for several laps. Then Myers and Krawczyk would spend the remaining 10 laps racing each other hard straight through to the checkered. Myers in his white and fluorescent yellow machine would mention post race how his car had been changed from a Street Stock to a Super Stock and how much better it is driving. Krawczyk would compliment Myers on his nice clean racing and how it is good for the fans and the drivers.

Next up would be the 6 Cylinders and the #14D of Chris Deyoe, Jr. and the #16 of Robert Cassidy would battle hard all the way through this race. In the end though the #16 would come up just a little too short and the win would go to Deyoe. The #14 of Frank Parsons would round out the top three.

The mighty modifieds would finish out the night going green to checkered with their 30 lap feature. The #40 of Alan Bookmiller would take an early lead from Jeff Pringle in the #96P but, the #10 of Cam Barber would be in hot pursuit. By lap 5 Barber and Bookmiller would start to tango and Pringle would be front and center to enjoy the show. This would continue for 5 laps until Barber would make a move on the bottom side through turn one that would allow him to overtake Bookmiller and claim the lead.
Not even lap cars could get in the way of the top 5 cars who would freight train their way around the track for the final 20 laps. Cam Barber would finish in the top spot with Bookmiller in second, Pringle in third, Majchrzak in fourth, and Timmerman rounding out the top 5.
