On lap-10 Clark separated himself from the field. Trump, Spano, Corey Barker and Randy Gates battled for top-five spots.
With 15-laps complete Clark was in total command with Barker running alone in second. Trump, Gates and Spano still showed in the top spots.
A quick yellow on lap-17 for Mike Phelps and Mike Taylor would tighten the field up in the closing laps.
On lap-21 fourth place running Randy Gates, who was having his best Fulton Speedway run, made contact with another competitor collapsing his front end. This would put Barker, Ron Davis III, Tony Finch II and Spano with Clark in the dash to the finish.
On lap-22 Davis moved to second and took off after Clark. Clark was just too quick as he checked out from the field for his second win of the season. Ron Davis III, Corey Barker, Tony Finch II and Jeremy Dygert rounded out the top-five.
AJ Kingsley would bolt out to the narrow, early lead in the 20-lap NAPA Late Model feature before a three car spin on lap-2 in turn three would bring out the yellow.
On the restart co-point leader Fleming, using the bottom of the speedway, shot into the lead.
With 5-laps complete Fleming opened a few car advantage over Kingsley as Aron Backus, Dave Talbot and Jason Occhino showed on the scoring tower.
At the halfway point Fleming opened a half a straightaway lead over Kingsley with Occhino, Talbot and newcomer Wade Robertson impressing in fifth.
With 5-laps to go Fleming was dominating as he caught the back of the field. Kingsley and Occhino ran side-by-side for second and third with Talbot and Kevan Cook fighting for fourth and fifth.
Over the remaining laps nobody had anything for Fleming as he cruised to the win strengthening his point lead. AJ Kingsley, Dave Talbot, Kevan Cook and Wayne Robertson finished second through fifth.
Taylor Jackson would lead the opening 2-laps of the 15-Lap E&V Energy Novice feature until last week's winner Rich Riggs took over the top-spot on a restart.
