MACON -- Rudy Zaragoza's street stock was all over the place most of the night at Macon Speedway. The car was loose and sometimes out of control. An 11th-place starting spot in the 15-lap Archer's Alley Street Stock feature made it look unlikely that his 67R would be gracing victory lane but things changed and the car got together at just the right time. The car found itself faster and faster as the green flag laps added up.
With the white flag waving, an accident happened in the fourth turn to slow the momentum that Terry Reed was taking all the way to the winner's circle. When the restart came, Reed found himself only a bumper's length ahead of Zaragoza and as the cars restarted and Reed chose to stay on top, Zaragoza ran the bottom and came up on top of Reed out of the fourth turn and crossed the line ahead of Reed to steal the win away.

Dakota Ewing passed Blake Damery on the fifth lap of the 20-lap Decatur Building Trade Pro Late Model feature to run away and win the race. Thanks to a dice roll to reset the first three rows of the feature, Damery found himself in the front row just as he was during his lone feature win. While it looked as if lightning may strike twice, Ewing caught up to Damery and seized the lead on the backstretch of lap five and coasted away with the checkered flag.
Rodney Standerfer also took total control of his feature as he won the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds event. The more exciting back-and-forth action took place behind Standerfer, who built a many car-length lead over the runner-up spot, as Trevor Neville, Nick Neville, Tommy Sheppard, Jr., Alan Crowder and Blake Thompson all traded and ran through the second place through sixth place spots. Nick Neville bested Alan Crowder for the second-place position.
Tim Hancock, Sr. stayed ahead of Billy Knebel to take the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified feature. Knebel was close to Hancock until the race got midway through and then as the green flag laps mounted, Hancock just kept pulling further away.
