Dean Wilson was blazing fast in qualifying, but a few mistakes in the main event pushed him back to finish just off the podium. His fourth-place finish kept him second in the points standings. Justin Hill started the main in 10th, but made his way up to sixth, while Cole Thompson also came through the pack from 18th to finish inside the top 10.
