KOOL KIDZ-CORR/PAK 360 SPRINT CARS VS. PATRIOT SPRINT TOUR (24 entries)
Jared Zimbardi started on the front row and led every lap of the 360 Sprint Car feature to claim the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak vs. PST challenge race at Ohsweken for the third year in a row. Pole-sitter Dylan Westbrook ran consistently faster lap times at several points during the 25 lap feature, but saw his rhythm broken by first a yellow flag, and then slower traffic later in the race. Westbrook settled for the runner-up spot, while Ryan Turner edged out his father Jamie and Ohsweken points leader Mitch Brown to round out the rest of the top five.

Heat race wins went to Dylan Westbrook, Mitch Brown, and Dane Lorenc, while Lee Winger won the Dash race. Jake Brown maintained his 8 point lead over brother Mitch in the 360 Sprint Car championship standings, as only show-up points were on the line for the special challenge event.
