The B Main, featured the very fast ThunderCat of Dan Mueller, making it's MASCAR debut.
After three segments, Dan and Tom were tied at 189, with Dave, a lap back and Tim down 14 laps.
The final segment saw Dan finish it off on his favorite yellow lane, Tom dropping back three laps on white.
Dave was blue on blue lane and Tim was suffering on the red gutter.
Bubba and Jerry were in their first magnet car A Main, with the perennial A Mainers, Jeff and Mark.
Bubba set the pace at first on yellow, but Blue brought him down to reality, Mark and Jeff kept their consistency.
Mark had 11 laps in hand over Jeff and 12 over Bubba going into the last segment.
Jeff turned a 70 on yellow, the best of the day, but not enough as Mark only lost six laps on the Blue gutter.
Bubba faded on white, and Jerry had gutter troubles.
Which led to Dan and Tom coming up from the B Main to take third and fourth overall.
