Qualifying went well for the team as everyone qualified into B mains or higher in their classes.

As the B mains rolled around, Garrett unfortunately would not be able to bump out of his B mains, although close in a few. He would then be set for to start in the front of the Rookie A Main. Louis had one B main to bump from and he go on to lead start to finish and take the 11th spot in the Intermediate truck A main. Scott Foy would be next, He started the B main and had a rough time coming through the pack but, would put in a great drive to come up just a bit short from the bump spot.
