Mason Fix continued his winning way at Lancaster as he scored his first win in Mallare Trucking Top ET. Fix, a former three-time Street champion and two-time winner in Mod ET this season, defeated fellow second-generation racer Keith Cleveland.

Ryan Ricketson broke out to hand the win to Reid. The Ricketson brothers are dueling for the Mod track championship with Ryan Ricketson starting the night with a 20-point lead.

Lucas Salemi stayed hot in Hebeler’s Sales Bikes & Sleds as he won for the fifth time in 2019, and for the second week in a row. Salemi defeated Michael Puglia in the final round as he held off the hard-charging motorcycle of Puglia. He leads all drivers at Lancaster in class wins in 2019.
