Race notes:
The Race 2 was originally started as a single race for larger Modified and Production cars. However one car stalled on the grid and and accident involving seven out of 60 starting cars led to stopping the race. When the wrecks were removed, the event was restarted as two heats, separating Modified and Production entries.
