Pair A Dice Interiors Sportsmans
18 equally matched sportsman lined up for a 30 lap main event with blisteringly fast Lee Kemmit in the #98 GTI machine on the inside of row one and multi time winner #26 Bear Lynch on the outside. Kemmit was leaking fluid and had to leave the track but returned under caution to the back of the field. On the restart #43 Stan Griffin and #84 Bruce Borchardt made contact in turn one which sent several cars spinning and crashing. #17 Dave Deines lost his motor and dropped oil all over the track which brought out the red flag as NASCAR officials cleaned up the mess. The long cleanup lead officials to shorten the race to 20 laps. At the halfway mark, Tommy Roe had a good lead but he was now being hounded by his teammate in the 98 car Lee Kemmit who had come from the rear of the field to battle for the lead. Kemmit and Roe raced side by side for several laps, bringing the CNS fans to their feet. When the checkered flag flew Kemmit had pulled in front of Roe by mere inches to take the win.

What is Demo X you ask???
It's a cross between demolition derby and a motocross race. Vehicles are low budget with safety features installed inside. They must travel through a designated course and over jumps. It is a full contact race to the finish line.
There are no yellow flags (except warning flags like in motocross) if a car rolls over there will be a red flag – all cars stop and are healed in their position, then once “ok” the green flag is shown. If a car becomes dead on the track, the driver will hold a flag up from inside their car signaling his car is dead and there are no more hits on them. No “head on” or “T bone” hits to the driver’s door. This will not be tolerated and if this happens they will receive the black flag.
The starting of the race will be a standing start and the cars will be 3 wide at the start/finish line, they will race 10 laps. (Number of laps may vary) Any and all vehicles are welcome, the exception is a 4-wheel drive. It must have one drive-line removed. No vehicles over 5000 lbs. A racers dream is when someone gets in your way or is holding you back and you can take him out with no penalties.
Mother Nature wins the Late Model feature but Kemmit, Nugent, and Medina shine for the fans.

Starting top 5: 27, 66, 12, 74, 7
Despite the immense talent amid the large field of 21 Late Models, the group struggled to find their usual groove. For the first 9 laps, from yellow flag to yellow flag Dan Savage, Roger Avants, Rick Smith and Adam Deines shared the limelight. With 20 to go, Avants and Smith could finally breathe a sigh of relief as the group settled into the asphalt for clean completion throughout the remainder of the event. Fan favorite and multiple time champion Bruce Yackey left the track early on after an altercation on the track with several other cars, but he returned shortly after to the rear of the field. Yackey drove his heart out moving back up through the field and with 9 laps to go Yackey was in a 3 way battle for 3rd place. With only 3 laps left in the 40 lap Main Event, Yackey was in 2nd but officials docked Bruce "The Moose" 4 spots for rough driving. By this time Roger the "Ice Man" Avants had built a comfortable lead and took the checkered flag for the win followed by Rick Smith, Adam Deines and Dan Savage.
