It was billed as the I-R-A vs. Knoxville 410 Shootout, and it was that plus special guest appearance by Four-Time Knoxville Nationals Champion Donny Schatz. The World of Outlaws stop in Eldora was rained out and Schatz hopped a plane bound for Knoxville and arrived just in time for hot laps. Schatz was driving a car that his owner NASCAR Driver Tony Stewart plans on driving a few times at dirt tracks this season. Schatz was his usual self, easily transferring to the A-Main out of his heat, but his luck would run out as he got upside down in the feature race and his night was done. Meanwhile, Dusty Zomer claimed the win in the 410 A-Main as he passed Danny Lasoski in the final few feet when Lasoski’s drive line broke slowing the car as the checkered flag came out. Clint Garner won the 360 race dominating from the start.
