The Bombers were the next main event, with Terry Leerholm and Daniel David leading the field to the green. Leerholm would lead early on, before the red flag came out on lap nine for Brad Aumen, who spun in front of the field and got t boned by Bruce Duffus. Both drivers were alright, but the cars were out for the rest of the night. Bill Gallacher would storm into the lead on lap eleven, and would go onto win ahead of Sean Whitley, Mike Dionne, Dylan Ross, and Aaron Cameron.

The Big Rig main event was last, with Jager Berdahl and Kevin McMekan leading the field to the green. Ron Singer would jump out to an early lead in the 71 truck, but had to pull into the pits with engine trouble. Isaac Harder would inherit the lead, followed by Darren Berdahl in the 91 truck. A fierce battle erupted for ten laps, before a fuel line on Berdahl’s truck let go, ending his night and bringing out the caution. Harder would pull away from Glen Creed, and win by over half a lap. Creed, Cory Riplinger, Cole Wiesner, and Kevin McMekan rounded out the top five. The dash win went to Gino Howe, with heat race wins going to Kevin McMekan and Darren Berdahl.
