Blevins claimed victories in the Formula 1, SuperBike B, SuperStock B, and SuperBike C. Blevins was impressive in his control of the Formula 1 race, qualifying on the Pole and leading wire to wire with an almost four-second margin over second place. Additionally, he posted the fasted lap of the weekend with a 1:14.940, the only rider to go under 1:15.

But Blevins showed more impressive racing skills in the SuperBike and SuperStock races, starting from the last row in all three.

Burleson won the Overall Solo 30 and the Middleweight races. Dunlop tires also claimed the top podium position in the Formula 2 Endurance with Team Torquasaurus. Individually Orchard (Formula 40 Middleweight), Nick Doolan (SuperStock A), Marcelo Fartura (Formula 40 Heavyweight novice), Shandra Crawford (Formula 1 Ladies) all picked up one victory each, giving Dunlop riders 10 individual wins on the weekend.
