Coming into tonight's Chick-Fil-A night at the races #74 Dan Savage had a slim 3 point lead over #12 Bruce Yackey, but The "Savageman" would have to start near the rear of the field in this 40 lap main event. At the start of the race #31 Rick Smith jumped out to an early lead over #27 Roger Avants. After a early race caution, race leader Rick Smith spun down the back straight and was sent to the rear of the field giving Avants the lead. Halfway through the main event Savage had come from the rear all the way to 2nd place bringing the CNS crowd to their feet. Behind Savage was #91 Chris Atkinson who was having a excellent run in third. Yet on this night it was the "ice man" Avants all the way who cruised to the win. In second place it was Savage with an impressive run from the back of the pack. Finishing third was Atkinson, fourth was #7 Adam Deines and #31 Rick Smith finished an impressive fifth after being sent to the back of the pack after his spin.
