In the heat race on Saturday Stacey finished second to Karolina Pelc, who scored her first win. Third was Eric Green followed by Thomas Casas who suffered a mechanical problem in the closing laps. The result gave Stacey two points to increase her championship lead to 25.
In the final Stacey got a great start and lead from the lights. She was now able to make the break and was closely followed by Eric, Karolina and Thomas. Meanwhile at the back Chris Chappel and Rob Cousineau were having their own duel. Stacey lead until the last lap when Thomas and Karolina were able to get past. Eric Green suffered a broken foot peg which eliminated him from the podium battle. Stacey was not able to get good enough drive out of the hairpin to try a draft pass and had to settle for 3rd. Karoline held of Thomas for the win. Congratulations to her on her first final win. Again Stacey scored three more valuable points over Eric to increase her lead to 28 points in the series. With one round remaining, this should be enough to secure the championship even if Eric scores maximum points.
