ASA SAT / ASA MIDWEST- For a while it looked like Jonathan Eilen had it won, then came Chris Wimmer, then Brian Campbell.  Wimmer took the top spot with less then 50 laps to go, but it was Campbell who made the winning pass with 12 laps to go in the ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour / ASA Midwest Tour portion of the All American 400.

CRA Super Series  - On lap 192 Chris Gabehart dove underneath Donnie Wilson to take the lead in the CRA portion of the All American 400.  Gabehart led much of the event early on and out lasted a talent field of Super Late Model drivers at the Music City Motorplex.  Boris Jurkovic's bid for a second All American 400 win ended up one spot short as he chased Gabehart across the line.

Pro Cup - Drew Herring had the final USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series race of the season all but won Saturday afternoon at Rockingham Speedway (NC).  Herring had a 12 car-length lead over Clay Rogers with four laps to go.  But, two lapped cars began racing side-by-side just ahead of Herring as he approached in the third and fourth turns.  Herring was forced to roll out of the throttle on the frontstretch, allowing 2004 Series Champion Clay Rogers to close in going full-bore.  Rogers had the pass made on the outside by the first turn.  Rogers went on to the victory, holding off Herring and Tom Hessert.

1) Rogers  2) Herring  3) Tom Hessert  4) Caleb Holman  5) Benny Gordon

Benny Gordon secured the final USAR Championship under the Hooters title, as the restaurant chain has waved the checkered flag on their sponsorship of the series.  Despite losing out on his first win of the year, Herring’s second-place finish earned him the Pro Cup Rookie of the Year title.

SLM - Flashco SRL - At the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Bullring, hometown hero Bear Rzesnowiecky took the lead on lap 34 of the 100-lap Late Model feature in a thrilling move as race leader Jim Pettit made contact with the second-place car of Dan Holtz and the pair drifted high in Turn 2. Rzesnowiecky, running third, took advantage of the situation and slipped beneath both cars to claim the lead.  Pettit recovered from the bobble and set his sights on the lead. He managed to catch Bear on lap 51 and retook the lead.  The caution flag flew on lap 54 for a spin by Brennan Newberry. Pettit held the lead on the restart with Rzesnowiecky in hot pursuit. Bear drove beneath Pettit in Turn 4 to take the lead on lap 59, only to see his pass negated as the caution flag flew for a four-car accident in Turn 1. Pettit pitted under caution and Rzesnowiecky found himself again in the lead. The green flag flew and Pettit began his charge to the front. By lap 65, Pettit had raced back up to seventh place. In the meantime, Rzesnowiecky built up a two-second lead on Dan Holtz and Jamie Dick. By lap 80, Rzesnowiecky enjoyed a full-straightaway lead on the second place car while Pettit seemed stalled in fifth place. Rzesnowiecky lapped the 10th-place car on lap 95 as Pettit moved into third place. Pettit took second place with two laps remaining but ran out of laps as Rzesnowiecky's three-second lead on the field was too much for the competition and he raced to victory.
