A bevy of 22 Two Brothers Motorsports AMRA Modified’s would take flagman Todd Gorrell’s green flag and it would be the familiar unsponsored blue #20 of Sistersville, WV’s Mike ‘Bird’ Wilson grabbing another checkered flag in his illustrious open wheel modified career. Wilson would hold off Shawn Jett at the line while a third and fourth battle would see James Dennis outduel Rick Venham with Donnie Nething rounding out the top five.
