Mike "Hammer" Hammond once again ended the night on a win. In one of the last Friday night events, the "Hammer" once again proved his worth at the Paris Speedway track.

Heat 1:
Terry Rideout got the gate followed by Hammond and DeVeau. On lap 2, Rideout had too much drive going into 3 & went wide opening the door for Hammond to slide under & DeVeau tried to follow suit, but Rideout closed the door and kept him back.

Heat 2:
Hammond jumped the light & went back to penalty line.
Restart: Best race of the night, with lots of fast, tight racing. Terry Rideout gated well, but again he went wide in turn 3 on lap 2, leaving Aaron DeVeau & Mike Hammond to dive underneath, DeVeau fought hard to try pull off a win, but gets wide in 1 & 2 on lap 3 and slides out, but remounts to take 3rd, behind Rideout.

Heat 3:
From the tapes, Hammond, Rideout and DeVeau.

Sadly, the track promoter choose to water the track right before the speedway final, which due to the late night dew, left the track like ice. Which in turn caused a delay as they attempted to fix the problem. After a short delay the riders took to the line with Hammond on the outside gate where the traction was, Rideout in the middle and DeVeau inside. Deveau was battling a clutch problem which ended up with it imploding just as he finished the race. Rideout did all he could to get under Hammond throughout the race, but due to the dicey track conditions, he was forced to safely settle for second place.
