Jeff was the class of the field throughout qualifying and took home the overall with wins in the first and second legs of the triple A-main event. Super Stock Truck belonged to Nick Lasley from the start. Wins in the first 2 legs of the triple A-main event gave Lasley the overall victory. With first place wrapped up, Nicol and a few other drivers still had a chance for top 3. After a tie breaker, Jeff Nicol ended up 4th overall losing the tie breaker to team mate Chris Van Air who took 3rd overall.
