Friday evening time trials and Sunday’s program were fully completed but extremely high humidity levels and area lightening ultimately thwarted the completion of Saturday’s eliminator.

Money winners included Chris Chapman, Clayton Howatt, Bruce Howatt, Brian Robar, Glenn Frizzell, Tony MacNeil, Jeremy Keans, Bruce Riley, Dani Rippey, Peter Marshall, Cory Sprague, Scott Sprague, Tim MacKay, Budd Murphy, Paul Pothier, David Massey and Warren Cottreau.
