In the UMP DIRTcar Late Model division, Dewayne Kiefer continued his 2012 early season hot streak. Kiefer and Kevin Cole had a great battle for the top spot throughout the entire twenty-five lap main event. The two swapped the lead back and forth on several occassions, with a little contact mixed in on a couple of occassions. Jason McBride took the lead at the drop of the green flag, with Kiefer and Cole getting past him by lap three. While Kiefer and Cole battled at the top spot, McBride, Craig Smith, Mark Voigt and Billy Laycock battled behind them. A late caution to setup a final duel to the finish and Cole would take advantage and get the lead from Kiefer one final time, but Kiefer would storm back on the high side to retake the lead and go on to victory. Cole would finish a close second with McBride taking third. Craig Smith would finish fourth and Billy Laycock fifth.

The UMP DIRTcar Modifieds saw a lot of good cars go off on the hook as a lot of impatience from many drivers led to a caution filled event with many wrecked race cars. But NASCAR veteran Kenny Wallace would lead the entire main event enroute to the win. Tommie Seets, Jr. would keep the pressure on Wallace as he stayed glued to Wallace’s rear bumper for the entire event, but was unable to make a bid for the lead. Seets would finish second. Rick Stevenson also had a great run and would secure a third place finish. Josh Russell would get the fourth spot with Brian Dively charging through the field to finish in the fifth spot.

After not racing in 2011 and most of 2010, it didn’t take long for Billy Faust to get back into the groove of things as he picked up the win in the UMP DIRTcar Pro Late Model main event in his very first attempt. Scott Weber jumped out to the early lead over Mark Oller and paced the field till just past the half way mark. Faust had been running back in the fourth spot until he decided to go to the top. Faust would then start picking off cars quickly as he moved to the front. Once Faust got the lead, he would check out and go on to a comfortable win. Weber would finish second with Oller taking third. Aaron Heck would get the fourth spot with Jim Shereck rounding out the top five.

David Armstrong and AJ Cline had a classic battle in the Street Stock main event. Armstrong led most of the event with Cline right on his heels. As Armstrong used the high side, Cline would make a move for the lead on the bottom and get the top spot. A lap later, Armstrong would get back under Cline and get the lead back. Armstrong would hold Cline off in the closing laps to get the win. Buddy Love would finish third with Fred Sparks fourth and Richie Gabriel fifth.

Josh Bauer would get around early leader Sage Thornhill and pull away to a convincing win in the Sport Compact main event. Thornhill would finish second with Rob Shaw taking third. Scott Wickliffe would finish fourth and Tyler Benson completed the top five.
