The packed crowd at East Bay Raceway would see early race leader Dale McDowell led 26 laps while battling Billy Moyer, defending Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Champion Earl Pearson Jr., and the 9th place starting Donnie Moran.    McDowell would jump to the early race lead over pole starter Rick Eckert. A lap 3 pile up in turn one would bring a red flag stop the racing action. The caution would again fly when 2nd place running Rick Eckert and 3rd running Moyer made contact resulting in a flat tire for Eckert and ending his night early.  After the restart Donnie Moran would grab the third spot and swap spots with Earl Pearson Jr. and compete in a 4 way battle for the lead with him race leader McDowell, and Billy Moyer.   Anthony White would bring out a midway caution and on the restart both Moyer and Earl Pearson Jr. would find their way around Moran and set their sights on McDowell. The three battled for the lead while Donnie Moran competed with Anthony Rushing for the 4th spot.  A spin by Shannon Babb would set the stage for a restart were a three way battle for the lead would result in Moyer and McDowell racing side by side at the flag stand on lap 25 and the final pass by Moyer for lead on lap 26.  Moyer would go on to victory followed by McDowell, Earl Pearson Jr., and Anthony Rushing who made a last lap pass on 5th place car Donnie Moran. Rounding off the top 10 were Brady Smith, David Scott, Clint Smith, Doug Horton, and Dennis Erb.   90 cars were entered in Tuesday evening’s event with Donnie Moran capturing his 2nd fast time of the week after a slight rain delay.
