Pecore hitted slower traffic by lap 11 as he had a great lead over the rest of the field. As we hit lap 25, Pecore was leading over Givogue, Brianna Ladouceur, Mathieu Bardier and Justin Lalancette. Lap traffic was playing a great role as Justin Lalancette made his way from fifth to second in 6 laps. At halfway point, action was still hot on the speedway as Pecore had sizeable lead over Lalancette, Givogue, Ladouceur and Bardier. Unfortunately, he slowed down on the following lap bringing the first caution on lap 51.

The race resumed on lap 59 as Pecore was still the leader with Justin Lalancette using the top lane and battled Pecore for the lead as Scott Morris brought caution on lap 62. Pecore was able to build a great lead over the field as he had great restarts at each time with Thomas Cook that was now in the top 5 but lost control of his car and lost his position on lap 88. Pecore led the final laps in front of Lalancette and Martin Pelletier who completes the podium.

Carey Terrance takes the early lead in the 30-lap feature in the Bandit Motorsports Modified with Mario Clair and Brian McDonald.

Terrance doesn’t waste time and the feature is ran really quickly with Terrance winning with a good lead over Clair and McDonald.

Ghislain Valade leads the way in the 20-lap Alexandria Home Hardware Pro-Stock with Rock Aubin being fast in the middle lane and passing Valade on the third lap. Terry Ladouceur stops in the backstretch on lap 6.
