After failing to record a lap in time trials, Bailes charged from 12th-to-7th in his heat, relegating him to a B-Main. Needing to place second or better, Ross finished one spot short of transferring in third.
With another $15,000-to-win preliminary feature on tap on Thursday, Bailes missed a transfer position by one car. Rolling off on the front row in his B-Main, Bailes' night was over after failing to transfer with a fourth-place finish.
Returning Saturday after a scheduled off-day on Friday, Bailes recorded a fifth-place finish in his heat, transferring him into a B-Main. With one more chance to make the 50-lap main event, Ross failed to qualify for the feature by missing the transfer spot by one position.
