As the green flag waved in the 60-lap Modified feature, Frank Cozze fired to the front of the field with Duane Howard, Matt Stangle, Kevin Vaclavicek and Jim Britt next in line. With four laps completed and after a few cautions, Cozze was still setting the pace with David VanHorn in second, Danny Bouc in third and Howard slipping back to fourth. On the sixth circuit, a multi-car tangle in the fourth turn caused the racing action to stop. On the ensuing restart, VanHorn shot his way past Cozze and into the lead with Bouc, Howard, and seventeenth place starting Ryan Krachun in tow. VanHorn quickly began to speed away from his foes. By the fifteenth circuit, VanHorn had a very comfortable advantage and was approaching the back of the field. Four tours later, VanHorn’s large lead evaporated as John McClelland’s ride slowed on the track and stopped in turn one. When racing resumed, VanHorn repelled Cozze’s attempt to regain the top running spot with Howard zipping by Bouc for third and Ryan Godown passing Krachun for fifth. Once again, VanHorn began to distance himself from the field. When the caution waved for the fuel stop at the halfway point, VanHorn’s edge was a full straightaway over Cozze. As the green flag waved following the mid-race stop for refueling, VanHorn outdueled Cozze to keep his lead with Bouc retaking third place from Howard. With twenty laps left in the feature, VanHorn had built a comfortable advantage over the pack. His lead continued to increase as he was beginning to approach lap traffic in the final ten circuits. On lap fifty-six, fifth place running Ryan Godown slowed down and the yellow lights illuminated for the final time. On the single file restart, VanHorn held off Cozze. Over the final revolutions, VanHorn was not challenged and crossed the finish line to claim his first win of the year and the sixth in his career at New Egypt Speedway. Cozze’s strong run netted him second place. Bouc finished in third with Howard claiming fourth. Thirteenth place starting Brandon Grosso completed the race in fifth. Mike Mahaney, Matt Stangle and John McClelland were victorious in the Modified heat races. The consolation contest was taken by Brian Papiez.

In the 30-lap Crate Modified vs. Open Sportsman feature, Cale Ross led from start to finish to claim his second career checkered flag. Billy Osmun, who started in seventh, chased Ross throughout the event and finished in second place. Louden Reimert was rewarded with third place following an impressive effort.

David Burns, the 2017 Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie champion, inherited the lead on the eleventh circuit and paced the field for the remaining distance to win the 20-lap Hammer Sportsman feature.

Connor King took the checkered flag in the Crate Modified contest. The Street Stock race was won by Bill Liedtka. Ryan Heim came out on top in the Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie feature.

Following a caution period on lap five, Buffalino retained his lead with Billy Pauch, Jr. zipping from sixth into second and Grosso slipping back to third place. David VanHorn, who started the event in eleventh, had just moved into fourth place when a flat tire on John McClelland’s car caused the yellow lights to illuminate on lap nine. Green flag action returned very briefly as Rich Rutski’s ride rolled over in turn one and the red flag was displayed. On the ensuing restart, Buffalino repelled Pauch, Jr. to maintain his edge with Grosso still in third. Danny Bouc, who won the last Modified feature on May 5, entered the top five on lap twelve. On the fifteenth circuit with Buffalino and Pauch, Jr. in close quarters, action slowed as PJ Oliver and Bryan Kuhl tangled in the fourth corner. When racing resumed, Buffalino rebuffed another strong challenge from Pauch, Jr. to keep the lead with Grosso remaining in third and Bouc climbing past VanHorn for fourth. At the halfway point, Buffalino was still holding off Pauch, Jr. with Grosso and Bouc dueling for third. After a good stretch of green flag racing that saw the leaders knifing through traffic, a string of caution periods on lap twenty eight occurred. During this time, Pauch, Jr. was forced to retire from the event with a fuel pump malfunction. Following the multiple yellow flags, Buffalino was still in front with Bouc and VanHorn driving past Grosso for second and third respectively with eleven tours remaining. As the race entered the final few laps, a bobble by Buffalino allowed Bouc to inch closer to the leader.

Also, the win automatically qualifies Buffalino for the final round of the May Modified Madness Series. With Bouc coming home in second, VanHorn was third. In the last quarter of the race, Ryan Krachun was able to motor by Grosso to finish in fourth. The Modified heats were claimed by Brandon Grosso, Billy Pauch, Jr. and Dominick Buffalino.
