The night had the usual three division races with the IMCA, Dwarf and Street Stock cars all battling for the checkered flag and much needed points. This being the second to last race of the season, several drivers were scrambling to move up in the standings. The IMCA began first, with number 41, Henry Ford in front. He was quickly passed by Frank Bridwell (number 72) and held onto his lead for the win. Number 81, Robin Ruud finished second and car number 00 Jimmy Kimball took third. The second IMCA race began with Jason Pike (number 23) in the lead but he was overtaken by car number 77, Michael Berger midway through the race. Berger held on to his lead and took the checkered flag. Pike then came in second and car number 53, Henry Anderson settled for third. The dwarf cars took to the dirt next. The first heat began with James Bonetti (number 9x) taking a strong lead and kept it for the remainder of the race for the win. Car number 17, Jay Ewing took second and Robert Ewing (number 16) finished in third. The second dwarf race began with car number 25, Corey Lasiter in the first place slot and holding his position for the win. Number 2x Ronnie Williams placed second and car 57, Brandon Contrad grabbed third. The Street Stocks rumbled onto the track next with car PAHRUMP FAMILY DENTAL Jeffrey A.

Kimball maintained his lead for the win, with car number 17, Michael Hildebrand in second and Steve Gertson, (number 51) taking third. The second heat began with number 72, Harley Cooks in the lead. Steve Hamrick, in car number 8, made a strong move near the end of the race to over take Cook. Hamrick punche d the speed and held off another strong contender Alan Levinson (number 13). Levinson finished second and Cook settled for third. The third Street Stock heat began with car number 555, Keith Gott in first. Car number 52, Anthony De Biase passed Gott midway through-and fended off both Gott and Tom Baird (number 2) to take the checkered flag. Baird finished in second and Gott came in third. The Speedway next saw the trophy dashes with the Dwarf division first. Bonetti took home the trophy, Laster came in second andcar 17, Jay Ewing took third. The IMCA division was won by Pike, with Ruud in second, and Bridwell taking third. The Street Stock trophy race was won by Kimball. Hamrick placed in second, and Levinson settled for third. The Dwarf main race took the track after a chilly inter- mission. Jay Ewing found himself in first early on but, his luck ran out when Bonetti (9x) passed him to take the lead. Bonetti's teammate, Ronnie Williams (2x) was in second the entire race but passed Bonetti on the last lap for the win. Bonetti came in second and car number 10, Jay Thom took third. Pike and Ruud went at it once again in the 20 lap IMCA main event. Pike scrambling for last minute points to defend his championship title, made a valiant effort to unseat Ruud. Ruud however, would not relinquish his first place position to Pike. The two battled it out the entire race, the whole time Kimball eying for an opening to sneak around both of them. In an unusual twist the race ended with only five drivers left on the track, as spinouts or mechanical problems forced others out of competition. Ruud won, with Pike placing second and Kimball finishing third. Street Stock cars came out for their main, marking the last race of the night.

One of the wrecks involved Kimball and Gott smashing into each other, creating a mangled mess. The race stopped for almost a half an hour while the crash crew pulled the two cars apart. Gott did start off the race in first but the crash forced him to the back. Anthony De Biase (52) moved in and kept his lead through most of the race until Levinson overtook him and remained there for the win. De Biase grabbed second, and Homer Rush (number 46) came in third. The Speedway had one of its lowest attendance to- tals of the year due to the bone chilling cold. By race' s end there were roughly 75 or so remaining, proving that Pahrumpians who love their racing are the proven bold in the cold.
