Coming off barrel 4 in heat 5, Fraser, driving the Neway Oilfield Services Outfit, won first place for the second time this week by 49 one-hundreds of a second over rookie driver Jordie Fike who placed second on the night. Kelly Sutherland, Troy Flad and Tim Haroldson rounded out the top five for the night.
