The running order for the evening was:

• Nesmith Crate Late Models
• Nesmith Street Stock
• Limited Late Model
• Nesmith Sportsman
• Pure Street
• Pony
• Buzz

In addition to the actual races, another highlight was the Eric Cates Memorial Candlelight Vigil and Balloon Release. For those unfamiliar with Eric Cates and his dog Gypsy, please go here for background information.
