After repairs were made to those running in heat five, Dennis returned to the racetrack and appeared to finish second until Scott Bloomquist was disqualified for weighing in light at the scales, which gave the heat race triumph to Erb. The Carpentersville, Illinois ace then started the 100-lap crown jewel extravaganza from the outside of the front row, but battled a tight racecar throughout the 'Dirt Late Model Dream' and eventually pulled into the pit area to settle for a twenty-sixth place effort.
