Action opened on Thursday night as twenty-four entries looked to take a stab at a program that boasted a $1,500 top prize. Jeff started the night off by winning his preliminary heat race and going on to win the dash, which left him starting third in the feature. In the main event, he would quickly motor his way forward, and with an extreme slide job overtook the top spot from early leader Ken Schrader. Taylor remained untouchable in the closing laps to score the win over Schrader, Spencer Wilson, Richie Tosh, and Jared Siefert.

When action ratcheted up on Friday night for round #2 of the three day affair, Jeff struggled early and found himself rolling off from the 21st starting spot in the $1,500-to-win main event. During the course of the feature, Taylor rocketed from deep in pack to claim the victory in a thriller ahead of Richie Tosh, Marlon Sidler, Brandon Smith, and Shawn Walsh.

On Saturday evening, Jeff unloaded his #5 Open Wheel Modified at the 3/8 mile speed plant in pursuit of his third straight win in the finale of the three day program. In the main event, Taylor reached victory lane once again over Richie Tosh and Shawn Walsh with Tyson Franks and Spencer Wilson rounding out the top five.
