York’s Cory Haas led the first of the 30 laps from the pole position, before Forsythe, who started second, took command. Haas challenged several times during the remainder of the event, but Forsythe was up to the challenge and raced to the victory.

All Star point leader Chad Kemenah got by Haas for second on the final lap, with Haas third and Freddie Rahmer coming from the 10th starting position for fourth. Fawn Grove’s Matt Campbell completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Alan Krimes, Tim Shaffer, Robbie Kendall, Brian Montieth, who came back from an early-race spin, and Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri.

Mason Chaney came out on top of a wild scramble to win the 20-lap legends feature. Chaney led only the final lap. York’s Lucas Montogmery finished second, after leading much of the race, with Hayden Pascoe, Bob Stough and Craley’s Bill Diehl in the top five.

Lincoln suffered a 50-minute rain delay during the running of the legends heats.
