Bandolero feature racing was one of the most exciting races of the day which found many contenders vying for the victory and saw the championship race getting intense. Ty Smith was the early race leader and again looked very strong in the early laps of the race. A restart found Sawyer Reiss passing Smith on the outside to take his turn at the lead with Smith dropping to third.
Lap 6 found track champ Mike Roth working past Reiss to take the lead. Lap 8 proved to be the most dramatic lap as Reiss and third place running E. Rygielski made contact down the frontstretch resulting in a turn 1 crash between the two drivers and Monika Deckelman. All three drivers were not able to make repairs and dropped out of the race.
The restart found Smith powering by Roth on the highside to take the lead for several laps. However, with two laps to go Smith began to lose the handling and fishtailed coming out of turn 4 allowing Roth to reclaim the lead with an inside pass down the front chute. Roth continue to lead while Smith now had his hands full with Sean McElearney who got to the inside of Smith and made a sweeping pass to take second.
At the checkers it was Roth taking home his third win of the season in his Sullivan Engine # 8 over McElearney in second and Smith in a bittersweet third. Isaiah Anderson won the Beginners race.
