When the race was over Richie  Turner picked up another win with Champion Roger Edgecomb finishing second in  the 1x and Brad Sanborn came back for the third spot. 
The 4 cylinder bone stocks were 16 strong Saturday night. Point leader Ryan  Heuser had the title locked up at the start of the night and he asked track owner  Mike Humphrey if he could start on the pole one lap down and see if he could win  from a lap down. After asking the other drivers what they thought everyone was on  board.
