Zach Morrow was victorious in the RUSH Sprint Car feature.  Jeremy Weaver started on the pole and Morrow started on the outside of the front row.  Morrow grabbed the lead from Weaver on lap two but Weaver stayed right behind him and took the lead back just after halfway.  A caution-flag just past halfway had Weaver, Morrow and RUSH points-leader Brian Woodhall all battling for the lead.  Morrow was able to get back out front with 2-laps to go but it wasn’t over as Weaver and Woodhall took different lines through the turns on the last lap but Morrow was able to hold them off for the victory.
