SOS Fleet Services Promod - Derrick Lofton collected his first feature win of the 2022 season after lapping the field. He is a force to be reckoned with .
Stinger - Curtis Boswell and Mr Ben put on good show with Dannis Martin hot on their tail. When it came to lap cars they were weaving and bobbing and Curtis took home the checkered.
Rookie - 1st time rookie driver Taiyor Fee borrowed a car and came out the gate ready to race. He put lead the field all the way to the final flag.
Limited - Stephen Guidry came here for this win! Long time friend of the Smith family he had one thing on his mind and he made it happen with a roof slap in victory lane.
Street Stock - Mickey Trosclair came to take the money back to South Louisiana and he did just that after putting on a good show with teammate Josh Arbie.
Crate Late Model - Timing in fastest was Kevin Sitton from Baytown, Tx who started on the pole with Rob Litton. This was the best race of the night with some good hard competition racing with only one caution. Rob Litton was able to pull off the win with Rick Duke hot on his tail and Sitton coming in third.
Factory Stock - Shawn Graham from Shreveport came down to check out the speedway. He went from worst to first in heat race number one which lined him up for the pole position.
