Race Notes: JR Lawson (Shubenacadie, NS) appeared to be on his way to a second straight Mike Stevens Memorial Mini Stock win – until the last lap in the last corner. A slow car had spun in Turn Four as Lawson sped towards the checkered through the lapped traffic. Lawson had nowhere to go and struck the spun car while Cody Byrne (Orwell Cove, PE) slid under and raced his way to the victory. Byrne, now a two-time winner of the event after winning in 2018, raced to the line ahead of Lawson and Jesse Deveau (Greenwood, NS). Thirty-two cars started the feature with 25 on track at the checkered flag, 16 of those finishing on the lead lap.
