The third and final evening for the Rocky Mountain Classic was held at Colorado National Speedway with 40 cars checked into the pits for the National Qualifiers.  Chris Eggleston of Erie, CO held off National charger Daniel Hemric for the win in the Pro division.  Kenzie Ruston of El Reno, OK made it 3-for-3 in the Semi Pro division.  Jon Krizman of Loveland, CO was the third different Masters winner of the weekend and Three Oaks, MI resident Garrett Goodwin claimed the Young Lions win.

The 40 Legends were split into 19 Semi Pros/Young Lions and 21 Masters/Pros.  The Semi Pros/Young Lions feature fell to 18 cars after Zach Powell's throttle stuck in practice and he crashed hard into the wall to end his evening.  Semi Pro/Young Lion Heat races were won by Arvada, CO resident Scotty Scott and Kenzie Ruston from El Reno, OK.  In the Pro/Masters division Chris Eggleston from Erie, CO and Matt Henderson from Port Orchard, WA claimed the heat races.

The Semi-Pros/Young Lions were sent out to do battle first and Kenzie Ruston jumped out to the early lead over Garrett Goodwin and Alex Pacheco.  Chris Henry got by Pacheco by lap 5, and Daniel Ivaska was fourth late in the race.  Ruston charged to the caution-free win over Goodwin, Henry, Ivaska and Pacheco.

The Pros/Masters were sent out for their 25-lap feature and Jimmy Hansen took the early lead over Daniel Hemric.  Jace Hansen took over second on lap two.  Hemric was back up to second by lap 9 and several cautions on lap 10 put Jimmy Hansen and Hemric side-by-side for the restart.  Chris Eggleston shot into the lead on lap 12 and Hemric took over the lead on lap 21.  Coming for the white flag, Hemric bobbled in turn 4 and Eggleston took back the lead and held on for the big win over Hemric, Jimmy Hansen, Brad Hancock, and Jace Hansen.
