It was a day filled with extreme cold, blustery winds, rain, hail, a little sunshine, and yes, even some snow fell for the Henderson 250 race. By qualifying first, Justin Lofton started on the pole, and with a minute head start, set a blistering pace for two laps with Rob MacCachren lurking just behind. On the final lap, Lofton and MacCachren battled, jostling for the lead, but Rob MacCachren would cross the finish line just ahead of Lofton with a time of 3 hours 50 minutes and 46 seconds, and would take the unofficial overall win. TJ Flores and Jason Voss finished second and third respectively, but Ryan Poelman, in the #62 Trick Truck finished second on time.
