It was a popular win for Messer amongst the fans in the Geary Woods, with the crowd erupting as Slaunwhite chased him across the line in second with Jarrett Butcher (#54) coming home third. East Coast International 150 results are unofficial, and official results will be published by the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour.

In Speedway 660 house division action, Shawn Hyslop (#99) cruised to victory lane in the 50-lap Shur-Fit Automotive, Bumper to Bumper Street Stock division. Hyslop led every lap en route to the victory, his first of the season and seventeenth of his career in the Street Stock division at Speedway 660.

Luc McLaughlin (#11) had a mechanical failure while working his way through the field. Rick Cashol (#54), Ron Enkel (#52) and Mike Duskey all went for spins during the feature.

Jason Duffield (#91) made it two first-time feature winners in a row in the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter division. Duffield drove around Randy Titus (#75) on the twelfth lap of the race, and never looked back en route to the victory in the caution-free 25-lap feature. Titus would hang on to finish second with Darren Wilcox (#32) rounding out the podium in third.
