  Two vintage modifieds were on hand, as they will be racing at the speedway in a couple of weeks. Local runner Danny Willmes was the quickest in that class.

  Besides a couple of debris incidents and spin outs, the only accident on the evening came in the second Auto Value Scorpion session. Rookie Jacob Heimes made heavy contact with the front stretch wall exiting the fourth turn, wrecking the front end on his Acura Integra.

  One car driven by Josh Schoonmaker, in the Super Stock class, was unable to turn a lap as it would not remain powered up. Cars turned laps until dusk. Each division was able to run four session of testing. A good number of fans were also on hand.
