Bob Stough drove to victory in the 20-lap legends feature. Stough took the top spot from Steven Wurtzer on the seventh lap. Wurtzer stayed close, and Jeremy Ott joined the battle, with the finish showing Stough, Ott and Wurtzer the top three, with just .207 of a second separating them at the checkered flag. Chris Transeau and Travis Perry completed the top five. 

Coupled with his win Friday at Trailway, Transeau claimed the championship of the weekend’s Trailway/Lincoln Shootout for the legends cars. Following Transeau on Friday at Trailway were Austin Bellamare, Seth Kearchner, Perry and Travis McClelland.
