With guidelines in place, only 250 fans are allowed to attend the races. Vehicle parking was also allowed along the east and north side of the track to watch seven classes of Wissota and IMCA racing.

20 drivers competed in the Sport Compact feature and at the end it was Nathan Kohl winning with Alyssa Nelson in second and Greg Kohl third.
