Omaha's John Anderson stopped the Berck win streak at seven when the SLMR series finally had good weather at the Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa on Saturday, September 6. Starting outside second row, Anderson put the Koons Motorsports #21X out front on lap seven when he passed Ben Schaller for the lead. Anderson would stay out front the rest of the way despite late race pressure from Berck who started fifth.
Not only did Anderson pick up the $1,000 AgriVision Berck Bounty, but also took home $2,000 for winning the event as the Malvern Trust & Savings Bank added monies to the normal SLMR purse. Following Anderson and Berck to the line were Tad Pospisil, Bill Leighton, Jr., and J.C. Wyman.
In the special Ray Houck Memorial Dash, ACS regular Jason O'Brien drove to a convincing win and picked up a check for $1,000.
