Eric Abbatiello finished second in the race, with 45 wins. Jim Marohn Jr was third with 43 wins, followed by Vinny Ginsburg in fourth, with 37 victories.

In the training department, Paul Fusco led the way among trainers during the meet. He won 18 races from 131 starters. Brandon Mongiello was second with 16 victories, Bill MacKenzie was third with 15 triumphs, according to the press release.
