ARCADE, NY…..The two-night Previty Auto Wrecking/VP Racing Fuels Freedom Fall Classic took place Friday night with perfect weather conditions. The 30-lap Pete Loretto Memorial for Super Late Models headlined the show.
Dave Scott was the early leader of the Pete Loretto Memorial event, but there was wild action behind them as Dave Hess charged past Wyatt Scott and Dutch Davies to get second and put pressure on the race leader. Hess made a daring move between Scott and a lapped car to take the lead on lap 13. Six laps later, Bryce Davis brought out the first caution flag of the event when he stopped in turn four. On the restart, Hess pulled away and went on for the win, with Dave Scott holding on to second.

Off the final corner, Dixon snuck under Holmes and held on for a half car length win. Grigsby held off Jenco for third, with Dustin Waters right behind in fifth.
In the Bellinger Electric/Close Racing Supply Pro Mod feature, Steve Dixon opened up a couple of car lengths over Al Brewer at the start with Adam Ashcroft battling Brewer for second.

The 20-lap Street Stock feature saw Tom Kemp jump into the lead with Joe Chamberlin giving chase.

Following Stebbins and Chamberlin were Andy Eastman in fourth and Steve Sklar in fifth.
In the Mini Stock feature, William Weller Jr took the lead but got caught on the outside of a three wide battle with Josh Torrence and Brad Whiteside and wound up piling into the frontstretch wall.
