The ASRA Thunderbike national at Summit Point started off tight. The 12 minute qualifying sessions had 3 riders fighting for pole position. McGlade, DeFrancesco, and Wiest would be separated by two tenths of a second. Brian Mcglade would claim pole position with a 1:20.322 on his 5th lap. Bart Defrancesco in 2nd with a 1:20.482 and 3rd was Sam Wiest running a lap time of 1:20.545. Jason Zelibor rounded out the front row with a 1:21.096.

At the drop of the green flag it was McGlade and Defrancesco going into turn one side by side. For the first few laps it was the top 3 from qualifying running in that order but Arnold Hastings would make his way into third and then second place. Bart Defrancesco would run into a mechanical issue forcing him to retire the race. 2 laps later, Wiest would also retire from the race crashing out of 3rd place in the turn one area. Turn one also claimed the likes of #171 Todd Alberico and #61 Will Finnerty. Mcglade would cruise on to victory 5.6 seconds over Hastings. George Demetropolis held off the attack from Jason Zelibor to claim the final podium position.
