The field was short, but there was no lack of action when MSA came to Midvale Speedway. The first heat saw the #64 of Jim Paller come away with the win. Second heat it was #36 Jon Henes with the win. Front axle broke on the #7 car of Chargin Charlie Schultz that just about put him in the turn four wall, but Schultz was able to save it. The crew thrashed and got the car fixed to be able to run the feature.
It was still daylight when the MSA Supers hit the track for their feature. The #64 of Paller started outside pole next to the #07 of Kevin Jaycox Jr. and was off like a rocket.
Lap 3 saw the #81 of Denny Fisher who had started in 4th position get caught up in a jingle that backed him into the wall. He would be out for the evening.
On lap 5 after the restart action was hot and heavy in the middle of the pack. The #7 of Schultz and #22 of McVetta were trying their best to get around the #36 of Henes. #7 Schultz went in deep on the inside and McVetta went outside in turn one.
The outcome wasn't pretty looked like #7 Schultz and #36 Henes bumped and the result, #7 Schultz spun and set up a melee in the back of the pack that resulted in the #92 of Lehnert catching a wheel and up and over he went. #92 Lehnert would be ok the car not so much.
After a lengthy delay for track clean up and several cars #7 Schultz, #36 Henes, #22 McVetta and #21 Palmer all headed to the pits for repairs. On the restart Paller's 64 was still on the point followed by #77 Lesiecki, #07 Jaycox Jr., #5 K. Shirey, #7 Shultz, #36 Henes, #22 McVetta and #21 Palmer in pursuit. The #5 of K. Shirey would have several problems and would retire to the pit along with the #21 of Palmer. The #22 McVetta and #07 Jaycox Jr. would soon follow.
The Paller 64 would go on to win the event with a closing of #7 Schultz and #36 Henes with the #77 Lesiecki close behind.
There was a large crowd on hand at Midvale Speedway on this blistery hot Summer night, but they thoroughly enjoyed the event and expressed their feelings when ask if they enjoyed the event they responded with favorable cheers and Yes’s and want them back two times next year.
