So far Gillmore has won from the eighth starting spot and the outside front row after a door-to-door race for 15 laps with Lebanon Midway Speedway track champion Dillion McCowan until McCowan had a rocker arm issue put him in the pits.
Gillmore, a former USRA National Champion, held back for the final 4 laps Jackie Dalton following a lap-16 caution to earn the win.
