The Pepsi Power Stock features brought the large Eve of Destruction crowd to its feet with two thrilling finishes. In the first 20 lap main event #6 Joey Prusak grabbed an early lead and looked to be cruising for another victory until the #88 car of Nick Oxborough had a flat tire and brought out a yellow flag with five laps remaining in the race. The caution period bunched up the field and set up a great battle to the finish, Taylor Goldman #8 from Minnetonka (MN) was the fast qualifier and due to the inversion, she started the race in the tenth position, after the restart she had the opportunity to challenge Prusak for the win. With two laps to go the Joey Prusak car got loose in corner two, Goldman’s car then had some slight contact with the Joey Prusak car and he spun down into the infield, the race continued under green with Goldman in the lead but getting heavy pressure by both #66 of Joe Prusak (Joey’s dad) and now defending Champion #10 Dusty Mann as they raced to the white flag. Goldman had her hands full holding off Joe Prusak on the last lap but then to add to the chaos the Joey Prusak car continued onto the track and was just getting up to speed as the leaders were racing to the line. It was a wild situation as Goldman narrowly edged Joe Prusak at the finish by .204 seconds and then had to dramatically swerve around the Joey Prusak car and narrowly avoid a huge wreck just across the finish line. Joe Prusak finished second, Dusty Mann was third, #27 Darin Patnode fourth and #08 Michael Stoer finished fifth of the seventeen cars entered.
It was a drama filled night for #88 Nick Oxborough from Lakeville (MN), he and his crew had to fix a broken torque converter after practice and then had a flat tire as a result of contact in the first feature. That put him on the pole for the second feature event. At the beginning of the race he and #83 Julie Jorgenson raced side by side for the top spot. Oxborough finally established the lead halfway through the race but then Jorgenson again drove up again and challenged him lap after lap. Jason Michaud #41m then took advantage and drove up behind Oxborough with three laps to go, tapping his back bumper numerous times but couldn’t make Oxborough move up from the white line at the bottom of the track. Oxborough held off the heavy pressure and won by .218 seconds over Michaud at the finish line. Jorgenson finished third, Michael Stoer #08 was fourth and #8 Taylor Goldman finished fifth of the seventeen cars entered in the race. This was the first Power Stock win of the year for Nick Oxborough.
The unofficial standings now have Taylor Goldman with a 74 point lead over Jason Michaud with Nick Oxborough in third 84 points behind and Michael Stoer fourth 94 points behind in the race for the Championship.
The Spectator drags were even more entertaining than usual as members of the Minnesota Professional Towing Association raced each other round after round.
