The number of drivers to score a feature this season grew by two more as two new faces reached victory lane on Saturday night.

Following time trials, it’d be Nic Troback and Stan Coe leading the field to the green flag, with Coe jumping out to the early lead. Coe continued to lead as Ken Grubb and Jordan Howse worked their way through the field, running second and third when the caution flew with nine laps to go for Mike Weeda spinning in turn four. Grubb got a good restart to keep himself battle alongside Coe, taking the lead before the caution flew for Brandon McFerran’s top-five run coming to an end.

On the restart with five laps to go, Ken Grubb took the lead and led the rest of the way en route to scoring the checkered flag. Jordan Howse finished second for ninth top-five of the season, followed by Matt Bentley in third for his 10th top-five. Stan Coe finished fourth for his ninth top-five, while Anthony DiBello rounded out the top-five for his best finish of the season.

Johnny Morrison finished sixth for his second straight top-six finish, followed by Dennis Cybalski, Justin Holmes, Keith Temple and Dan Archibald.

Stefan Semeraro finished 11th, followed by Mike Weeda, Nick Tooley, Coltin Everingham, Ryan Semple, Miles Tyson, Kendra Adams, Ethan Constable, William Hughes and Ric Watson. Miek Troback finished 21st, followed by Herb Walters, Brandon McFerran, Paul Allard, Tyler Liscum and Brandon Passer.

In the second feature on the night, it’d be Dustyn Mombourquette and Stan Coe leading the field to the green flag with Coe taking the early advantage despite a pair of quick cautions due to incidents mid-pack. Unfortunately, Mombouquette’s strong run at the front of the field was short lived when he was spun by Bentley on Lap 2, collecting McFerran in the process.

Following the restart, Coe continued to lead as Treyten Lapcevich worked his way through the field, moving into second and searching for the lead ahead of Howse. Lapcevich made the move on the bottom work, taking the lead before the caution flew for Ethan Constable spinning on Lap 7. The restart brought forth contact between Tom Walters and Liscum, resulting in the biggest wreck of the season thus far.

Lapcevich got a good restart while Howse made his way by Coe to move into second. Howse quickly closed the gap to Lapcevich, hounding him each way, but unable to make the move for a pass. The caution then flew at Lap 12 for Brandon Passer spinning, setting up a restart with Lapcevich and Howse.

The pair spent the rest of the race side-by-side for the top spot, with Treyten Lapcevich edging out Jordan Howse by 0.086 seconds to score his first career Super Stock victory at the age of 12. Stan Coe finished third, followed by Johnny Morrison and Justin Holmes with his fourth top-five in the past five races.

Ken Grubb finished sixth, followed by Jade Franklin, Brandon McFerran, Matt Bentley and Dennis Cybalski. Herb Walters finished 11th, followed by Dustyn Mombourquette, Nick Tooley, Dan Archibald, William Hughes, Kendra Adams, Tyler Liscum, Stefan Semeraro, Coltin Everingham and Ethan Constable. Brandon Passer finished 21st, followed by Ric Watson, Ryan Semple, Mike Weeda, Tom Walters, Miles Tyson, Keith Temple, Nic Troback and Anthony DiBello.
