A field of 16 Jr. Sprints made their way to Port City Raceway as three heat races, but no B-Main this week would ensue. Only three different victors have claimed a win in the Jr. Sprint division as Jake Nail has carried the onslaught bringing in his division high two victories. Baron Silva, Holley Hollan, and Connor Lee all claimed preliminary heat race action.

Once the green flag dropped in the feature event it was Emilio Hoover who shot straight to the lead before the red flag flew for a huge multi car pileup on lap one. Hoover would lead the opening laps before Noah Gass would rocket from his 10th place starting position and into the race lead. Not far behind the #25 of Gass was the so far dominator of the Jr. Sprint division in Jake Nail as he climbed into second.

Shortly after halfway the yellow flag would fly and allow the field to bunch back up. This restart allowing Nail to fly past Gass and take the lead in his Mike Ross Inc. #14r. Also tagging along with the young veteran would be Shawn Mahaffey as he jumped into second.

Jake Nail would continue to slaughter the rest of the field and walk away with the victory to claim his fourth win of the season! Shawn Mahaffey finished second, Noah Gass charged from 10th to claim third, Hank Davis stormed from 15th to fourth, and Connor Lee rounded out the top five.

Heat race action would be claimed by Lonnie Fraley, Jase Martin, David Proffitt, and Benjamin Koelsch while Tyler Vandiver earned the B-Main victory.

After an opening red flag for two flips on the first lap, it was an all-out battle for the lead between multiple drivers. Jeremy Lucito, Austin Helt, and Brittany Yarwood would mount an incredible wheel to wheel battle for the lead in the opening laps before a yellow would bring the excitement to a screeching halt.

Meanwhile it was A-Class veterans of Jordan Herrman, Chris Andrews, and Jason Tracy charging from the rear of the field. Quickly enough it was Helt, Joey Baker, Herrman, and Andrews fighting to claim the lead. As the battle grew intense contact between Helt and Andrews would send the Tulsa Sod & Mulch #77 flipping wildly as it came to an abrupt halt and stuck in the backstretch fence. The driver would be fine and action would resume.

The ensuing restart would see the #92 Sawyer Chassis of Herrman explode into the lead and set sail on the field. The Jay, Oklahoma native would easily hold on to claim his second victory of the season and earn hard charger rights.

Trenton Jackson who started second in his #49 had been stalking Stringer all race long and was ready to pounce in the final laps.

One final green-white-checkered set up a shootout between Stringer, Jackson, and Tristan Oakes.

It was the Broken Arrow native of Yarwood who jumped into the lead from her pole position during the opening laps. Jordan Herrman, coming off of an impressive A-Class victory ripped the wings off for topless action and immediately roared to life in the Non-Wing feature while rocketing from ninth to third in the opening five laps.

After a yellow around lap 10 slowed Yarwoods pace down, it would be Herrman in his #92 Sawyer Chassis who stormed into the race lead for the second time on the night. As the Jay native began to tear apart the 16 car field, Jason Tracy would move his #25 into the runner up position and start to hunt down Herrman.

Tracy wouldnt hold second for long as the #89 of Jarrett Crouch capitalized on a Tracy mistake and took over second himself.

Tulsa native Raymond Hill would line up alongside Copan resident of Jeremy Wickham to pace the 16 car feature field.

Wickham would immediately take the race lead in his #21 machine and Raymond Hill would drop back in second. The #82 of David Doss would sneak by Hill shortly before halfway and stalk down the race leader of Wickham. At the halfway point Doss was all over Wickham and hounding him corner after corner. Finally, on the 14th circuit Doss was able to guide his Chaos Racing machine around Wickham and into the lead.

Just a few laps later on a restart it would be Cobbs in his #44 machine who would bring out the red flag after taking a vicious flip on the cushion. Cobbs would prove to be fine and Karley Kay Dobson would take over the race lead. Meanwhile Chris Andrews and Harley Hollan had been picking off car after car on their drive into the top five from the back of the pack.

The 13th circuit would see Andrews power his Justin Blevins owned #8 Sawyer Chassis around Dobson on the cushion and into the race lead.
