Qualifying heat race: Grid position was based on current points standings. Stacey started from the inside of the second row joined by Toni on the outside. A good start saw Stacey move up to fourth by the first turn and up to third half a lap later. The early leader was Ryan McCormick who pulled out a one second lead. Stacey moved past Nicole Pilkington and set about closing on Ryan. Shay Gauthier was now in third and by lap 2 both Stacey and Shay had caught up to Ryan. The three leaders had pulled a gap on fourth place. Shay made his move to the front and eased away, breaking the lap record on consecutive laps. The battle was on for second between Stacey and Ryan. Both swapped postions with Stacey making a pass around the outside of turn one. Ryan was soon back in front by the hairpin. Stacey made a drafting pass down the straight, but Ryan immedately got back in front. At the finish Ryan crossed the line 0.3 seconds ahead of Stacey. So third place means a front row start for the final tomorrow. Shay broke the lap record with a time of 1:29.308. Stacey was the only other rider to get under the existing lap record with a time of 1:30.947.
 
Toni had a steady run in seventh. Newcomer Jennifer Lima put on the pressure on the last lap with a drafting pass on the straight. Toni held her off into the fast right hand turn and Jennifer made a small error running wide. This allowed Toni to cross the line two seconds clear.
