In a stout field of 45 Late Models, Bailes topped his group in time trials before placing fourth in his heat. Clawing forward one spot in the 30-lap preliminary feature, Ross recorded a sixth-place finish.

On Saturday, Ross edged his way into the $50,000-to-win Mountain Moonshine Classic with the fourth-and-final transfer spot in his heat race. Starting on the eighth row, Bailes lost one spot in the 60-lap affair to finish 17th.
