After 2 straight rainouts, the weather finally took a turn for the good for the fans and teams at Limaland Motorsports Park as 90-degree temps and sunshine were a welcome change. Devon Dobie bagged his first feature win of 2018 in the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint feature, while Jerry Bowersock picked up the K&N Filters UMP Modified win, and Daniel Sanchez won his 4th Bud Thunderstock feature of 2018.

Kicking off the night were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders with the 25 lap A Main. No. 23 Devon Dobie and No. 1-10 Jake Brown led the field to green with Dobie grabbing the early lead, hitting lapped traffic on lap 5 and seemingly setting sail, until No 22d Aaron Robnolte brought out the red flag on lap 10 by flipping in turns 1 and 2. Robnolte was able to walk away, but his race was over. On the restart, No. 5M Max Stambaugh got a great run and looked to make his way into the top 4 until hooking a rut in turn 4 and getting upside down, ending his night. The red flag flew one more time for a 4 car pile-up on the backstretch that saw No. 49 Shawn Dancer get upside down and No 2 Kyle Sauder get tangled up then hit by No. 24 Kobe Allison and No. 15 Brandon Ferguson. All drivers would walk away, but their cars were done for the night. Dobie would power away on the restart, and hold off Jake Brown for the win, with No. 17 Jared Horstman finishing 3rd, No. 87 Jason Barney finishing 4th, and No. 10 Mitch Brown completing the top 5. Heat Races were won by Barney, No B20 Butch Schroeder, and Jake Brown

Next up were the K&N Filters UMP Modifieds in their 20 lap A Main. No. 22T Tony Anderson and No. 65 Todd Sherman would make up the front row for the start, and it seemed like the 2 winningest drivers in modern Limaland history would be the ones to beat, No. 95J Jerry Bowersock showed that Sherman and Anderson weren’t the only veterans that could get it done at Limaland. Bowersock would make his way to the front on lap 9 and set sail, winning over Sherman, No. 18 Ryan Sutter, Anderson, and No 3W Dylan Woodling. Heat Races were won by No. ZERO Brent Hole, Bowersock, and UNOH Racer Brendan Rassel in the No 1.

The Budweiser Thunderstocks completed the nights action with their 15-lap feature event with No. 463 Daniel Sanchez, and No. 87 Andy Welch on the front row. Sanchez would go wire to wire in the 15-lap feature with Welch staying close, but unable to make a move on the leader. It was Sanchez’s 4th feature win of 2018, winning over Welch, No. 22T Tony Anderson, No. 15 Jordan Conover, and No. 26 Justin Long. Heat races were won by Anderson and Conover.
