Limaland Motorsports Park celebrated the Independence Day weekend by opening the gates for Firecracker Friday, presented by T&D Interiors.  No. 17 Jared Horstman picked up another feature win in K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invader competition, with No. 11H Mike Hohlbein grabbing his first career feature win in Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifies, and No. 57 Jeff Jessup of Union City, IN winning his first career feature in Bud Thunderstock action.

Kicking off the night were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders in their 25 lap A Main. No 22H Randy Hannagan, and No. 5W Jeff Williams would lead the field to green with Hannagan getting the early advantage.  Horstman quickly dispatched Williams and set his sights on Hannagan, but the caution flag would wave before the battle could begin.  On the restart, Hannagan would continue to lead with Horstman in tow until lap 11, when Horstman executed a slide job in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead for good. Hannagan fell to a full straghtaway behind Horstman before the caution flag waved one final time on lap 23, for the No. 49 of Shawn Dancer coming to a stop in turn 1. Horstman would power away on the restart for the victory over Hannagan, with No. 12S Jimmy Stinson finishing 3rd after starting 11th.  No 28H Hud Horton was 4th and No. 23 Devon Dobie completed the top 5.

In Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified action, Mike Hohlbein, and No. 22T Tony Anderson would make up the front row, with the pair battling for the lead for the first 2 laps.  Hohlbein would grab the point and try to get away, but caution would fly on lap 3 for No. 7 Drew Smith coming to a stop on the backstretch.  On the restart, Hohlbein would hold off Anderson and methodically stretch out his lead, winning by a full straightaway over Anderson. No. 10L Nathan Loney would finish 3rd after a great closing laps battle with No. 11* Kyle Moore who finished 4th, and Ryan Sutter rounded out the top 5.

In Bud Thunderstock feature action, No. J2 Rob Trent and No. 57 Jeff Jessup would bring the field to green.  Trent would grab the early lead but Jessup would make his way past. Jessup survived 5 cautions including a final lap yellow flag to pick up his first career feature win over No. 463 Daniel Sanchez, No. 22T Tony Anderson, Trent and No. 7C Jordan Conover.
