The night would start off rough when Joshua would be disqualified from the heat race because he fell off the top of the race track in turn 2 and re-entered the racetrack in the wrong location. “Roger Toops, our race director, made the right call. We discussed the rule at the drivers meeting and I did not re-enter the race track in the correct location” –Joshua Shipley. The result would be Joshua starting dead last in the main event. Joshua would charge his way through the field while the race went 17 laps caution free. The caution would come out on lap 17. Joshua would be sitting 3rd behind Dustin Cormany and Cody Batten.
