The first Great North Legends feature had #26 Wil McCully lead lap one and #03 Robby Carter from Lakeville (MN) take over on lap two of twenty. After a caution period #91 of Tristan Swanson challenged for the top spot and took over the lead at the half-way point of the race. Defending point champion and fast-qualifier #75 Baiden Heskett then charged up from his 9th starting position to grab the lead coming up to the last lap but he had open wheel contact with Swanson and both cars spun coming to the checkers. The Heskett car turned sideways and barrel rolled up in the air three times, landed on his roof and caught on fire causing serious damage that ended his night of racing. The Swanson car resumed the race at the back of the pack giving the lead back to Robby Carter #03. Carter used his veteran smarts to hold back #08 Cole Klein not just once but two more times on restarts and won by .120 seconds. Klein was second, McCully third, #16 Matt Allen fourth and #71 Jon Lemke was fifth of the 19 cars entered. It was the first win of the season for Carter.
The second Legends feature had #91 Tristan Swanson lead until the #71 car driven by two-time ELKO Late Model Champion Jon Lemke caught him on lap 6 and passed for the lead on lap 8 of 20. A caution with three laps to go tightened the field but Lemke held on for the win by .228 seconds over Swanson. Cole Klein #8 was third followed by #47 Austin Jahr and #8 former two-time Bando Champion Colin Stocker. It was the first win of the season for Jon Lemke.
Heskett did not race in the second feature so that made #8 Cole Klein the new point leader in the Great North Legends, he now has a 24 point lead over Baiden Heskett.
