As action got going on opening night, Jesse Knight of Lebo, Kansas, driving Hillbilly Bone, picked up the win and the Limited Pro Stock Diesel Truck Championship for the Western Series. 

Justin Wagler of Morgantown, Ind., in Real Deere won the Limited Pro Stock Tractors on Friday night and that also gave him the 2018 Ag Protect 1 Series championship. Brian Buford in Thunderbuck, despite an 11th-place finish, wrapped up the Champion Seed Western Series title.

In the APR Lightweight Super Stocks, Roy Metz of Strykersville, N.Y., finished second in Get R Done, but that was enough to give him the season championship in the division.  Brice Terry of Gallahn, Mo., driving Too Hy Strung, earned the win by less than a foot over Metz.

The Mini Rod season crown went to Richard Peters of Thornville, Ohio, in Buckeye Special. Peters was second on the night, behind Alley Leischner of Weldon, Illinois, in Bobcat Jr.
