In the tightest point battle of the night the Modlites would see a couple of grinding frontstretch crashes eliminate a couple of point chasers and race contenders.  When the dust settled on the caution marred event it was Salem, WV’s Jeff Fornash picking up his 4th win in a row ahead of Ryan Baker, Troy Collins, Randy Kerns and AJ Spagnuolo.  Mitch Ward would win a hard fought battle to claim his first Tyler County Speedway track championship in the Modlite division.

Middlebourne racer Mick Baker would garner his third win of the season in the EDGE Hotmod division after a four car tussle between Baker, early leader Travis Thomas, Chad Smith and Darren Glover that would see Baker use a high side pass to pick up the win.  Baker would edge Chad Smith, Darren Glover, Brandon Weigle and Chris Thomas at the line.  Chad Smith would repeat as the 2014 EDGE Hotmod track champion at Tyler County Speedway.

Bill Tennant would notch another win to his impressive season in the 4 Cylinder division as the Colliers, WV racer would hold off Donnie Wamsley, newcomers Mark Adkins, Jason St. John and Jerry Adkins to the finish.  Clarksburg, WV’s Donnie Wamsley would notch another 4 Cylinder track championship to his resume.
