Dewayne Kiefer of St. Genevieve, MO claimed the UMP DIRTcar Late Model season opening feature event. Kiefer was able sweep the nights racing action as he also won the heat and dash events. Kiefer took the lead at the drop of the green flag in the main event and it appeared that he was going to run away with the win, but Billy Laycock worked his way to the second spot and then ran down Kiefer in the closing laps to challenge Kiefer for the top spot. Laycock tried all kinds of moves to get the lead from Kiefer, but Kiefer held him off to take the win. Rick Salter would cross the line in third with Craig Smith taking fourth. Chad Zobrist rounded out the top five.
