Port City Raceway held their weekly racing on Saturday night and it was as good as ever. Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is known as one of the best micro sprint tracks in the United States.

Jason Tracy brought the A-Class feature event to the green flag. Frank Flud coming off of a huge $12K win last week at Southern Illinois Raceway moved up to 2nd quickly after starting 5th. Tracy started to pull away in lap traffic until a caution came out letting the field bunch back up. On the restart, Flud went to the top and was able to keep pace with Tracy. A lap later Flud was able to get a big run off of turn two and then made a diamond corner in turns three and four. This allowed Flud to sneak underneath Tracy for the lead heading down into turn one. Flud would go onto win the A-Class feature event. Coming from the B-Main and starting 15th in the feature was Kris Carroll. Carroll would go from 15th to 3rd to earn the hard charger of the race.

Kris Carroll got out to an early and nice sized lead over Frank Flud. As Carroll closed in on lap traffic Flud was able to close in on Carroll and apply hard pressure. The top 2 got into some heavy la traffic and Flud pulled a mini slide job on Carroll. Flud dived into the corner but did not slide high, all he did was cut off Carroll on entry. Flud started to get away when Carroll got together with a lapped car. He spun around and came to a stop, causing him to go the back of the field. Brock Berreth restarted second and pressured Flud but never let him extend his lead as Flud would double down on the night with the second win. He would also get his third win in two weeks and third win in as many different classes (Outlaw Wing, A-Class, Non-Wing). Curtis Jones gained 11 spots through the race to earn the hard charger award.

Dave Nicholson led the field to the green flag and held the lead through halfway. With 5 to go Justin Simpson started to close in on Nicholson. The two of them got together on the front stretch, with Simpson getting the better end of it and led then into turn one. Nicholson then spun Simpson in the middle of turn one with himself spinning right after. Nicholson had to restart at the end of the field on the restart while Simpson was given the lead.

Pole-sitter Delaney Jost jumped out to the lead and sustained it through halfway. On a late restart, Jeffery Newell started to apply pressure all over Jost, trying to get around her and high and low. Newell was able to cut underneath the female driver in turn one to take the lead. But a cation was thrown before the lap was official, giving the lead back to Jost. With 4 to go Newell threw a slider on Jost and completed it taking the lead for good. Newell would lead the final 3 laps and win the final race of the night at Port City Raceway.
