In the opening Eastern Regional Arenacross Lites Class Main Event of the season, Sanayei made it look easy, grabbing the top spot off the start and leading all 15 laps. In his second season of competition, Sanayei knows he has the speed to win and he made a statement with his performance. Sanayei's teammate Mitchell Harrison started right behind him in second to start the Main Event, with Mages running third. Mages made the pass for second on the opening lap, but Dave Ginolfi was on a charge, starting sixth and eventually taking over second on Lap 10 and finishing in the runner-up spot. Daniel Herrlein rounded out the podium following a pass for third late in the race.
