The first feature up on the night was the 14 lap Sunline Auto Parts IMCA Sport Compacts, with Brent Hartley and Mike Hornung Jr. leading the field to the green flag. Hartley would take advantage of his front row start to grab the lead on lap 1 over Chuck Fullenkamp and Michael Grossman. But the action up front was slowed for the first time on lap 2, as Kyle Hamelton’s machine came to a stop in turn 2 on fire to bring out the caution. On the restart Hartley jumped back out front, but now had Grossman close behind in second. Grossman would slip past Hartley on lap 5 to take over the top spot, leaving Hartley to battle with Fullenkamp and Skipp Dunker, who started 6th. The lead that Grossman built up over the battle for second would be erased on lap 9, as Alyssa Steele would spin in front of the field down the front stretch to bring out the yellow. On the restart Ron Kibbe, who started 10th and was up to 5th, jumped the restart to bring the yellow light back out. He was sent to the rear on the restart. But before the field was set to go back to green, Grossman pulled into the infield with troubles giving the lead over to Dunker. Dunker would pull away over the final 5 laps to claim his third win of the season at the track. Fullenkamp edged out a 2nd place finish, Hartley was 3rd, Kimberly Abbott was 4th, with Brandon Reu coming home in 5th.
