A spectacular crash in the main final of the night pumped up the riders, and after two restarts, a great race ensued.

Eight riders gave the crowd a good night of fast and explosive action with a tapes malfunction, leading to the riders using a light for lift-off!

Heat 1:
Tommy Hensby got a flying start to lead home Mike Hammond, Zack Peters and Allan Chisholm.

Heat 2:
Kyle Legault and Aaron Hesmer battled out a good first lap until Legault hit the groove and took off. Terry Rideout and Gary Moody followed in to complete the heat.

Heat 3:
Tommy Hensby's reactions were too quick in the green light and he was put back 15 yards, again Legault and Hesmer hit the front leading Zack Peters, who was passed on the outside by Hensby on lap 2, Legault once again led the way to the tapes from Hesmer as Hensby closed in.

Heat 4:
Terry Rideout got a flyer and anticipated the light to take a great win ahead of Mike Hammond, Gary Moody and Allan Chisholm followed through to the chequered flag.

Gary Moody spun at the start leaving Zack Peters to take the lead into corner 1, Moody passed Allan Chisholm ad hunted down Peters, passing him on the outside on corner 3, and he never looked back and took a commanding lead to the flag! Great riding!

Aaron Hesmer lined up close to Legault who was in gate 5, with Mike Hammond in gate 1, the three of them charged to the tapes and spectacularly smashed together, as Tommy Hensby and Terry Rideout stayed on the inside line and avoided being added to the carnage! After a short break, the riders were all up battered and bruised, and bikes were given the ok, a restart ensued.

This time it was Rideout's turn to fall in the first turn, and with hopes that he hadn't reinjured his injury from last week's fall when his ankle was injured by his primary chain cover retaining bolt, he stayed down and all was well!

The third restart saw Hesmer move over close to Hensby, but this didn't phase the 17-year old who gated well, Rideout went off the 15 yard line and was unable to catch the flying Hensby. Kyle Legault pushed hard and led Hesmer and Hammond to the Chequered flag as the field was all evenly spaced to the end!
