First up on the track would be the Chet’s Auto Service / Economy Print and Graphics Sportsmen. 2011 Sport Stocks Track Champion Amber Slagle would lead the field down to chief starter Jeremy Slayden’s green flag. Slagle would do battle with 2009 Shiawassee Shores Pure Stocks Champion Jimmy Stratton, trading the lead a few times, before Travis Skarvi interjected himself in the battle. Skarvi would take the lead on lap three, and would look to be on the path to victory, but a caution would draw 2005 Track Champion Tom Stone right alongside the young pilot from Durand, Michigan. Skavi and Stone would race side by side, trading the lead a couple times, but in the end it would be Skarvi taking his second win of the season. Stone settled for second while Chris Begg, Billy Hagon and Stratton rounded out the top five. Heat race wins went to Justin Holloway and Vinnie Miller, while Chris Begg set fast time with a 16.981.
