Riders were treated to the best track of the season at Action Park on August 22, 2009. The surface was smooth and consistent thanks to the help of a new track drag that was made leading up to the event. Making the evening even better was the fact that the behind the bars FMX team, led by Casey Higgins and Tony Fontana, were on hand to do a show before the races and at intermission.

The handicap heats started off with Jerry Harman taking a win from the 40 yard line over Tuff McBride. Dee Holden won the second heat from the 0 with Adam "The Missile" Mittl in hot pursuit for second place.

Casey Donholt came all the way from the 50 to take the win in the first semifinal. Second place went to Harman with Mikey Buman third for the last transfer. Holden took fourth with Brian Bailey fifth. McBride was flying in the second semi and ended up first with Mittl just behind. The final position of transfer went to Russ Cornell. Shawn "Steamboat" Engel was fourth, Dwight Basa fifth and Cole Farwell sixth.

McBride was strong again in his scratch ride and took top position over Buman. Donholt finished ahead of Mittl when they met head to head in scratch competition.

Donholt continued his good form in the first semi when he topped McBride. Engel was third with Holden last. Mittl, on his new Bully Dog technologies sponsored Jawa, stayed out front of Buman as the two riders held the two transfers in the last semifinal. Taking third was Harman with Cornell fourth.

Harman made a great start and took command of the last chance race to win it with Cornell second, Holden third and Engel fourth.

Fans looked to a big match up in the scratch main between Mittl and Donholt but it never really materialized as Mittl's muffler came off at the start line and he missed the start. Donholt used his speed to gain the lead ahead of the others and never looked back on his Holden's disposal Jawa. McBride also had bike problems and fell to the back which led to Harman taking second place and Buman third.

In the handicap feature it was all Harman as he rode a very smooth inside line to victory. Donholt capped off a strong night with a second place while Buman was third. Mittl was fourth with Cornell fifth and McBride fell which left him with last.
