After a scheduled off day on Thursday, Beard came one spot short of a transfer position in his heat race on Friday with a fifth place finish, sending him into the B-Main. Streaking to a 10-lap consolation victory over Gordy Gundaker, Kyle locked into the 19th-starting position for the feature. With $5,000 on the line, Beard muscled forward four spots in the 30-lapper to register a 15th-place outing.

On Saturday evening, Kyle followed up a fifth place finish in his heat race with a 10-lap B-Main win.  Passing five cars in the 40-lap feature, Beard recorded a 15th-place finish.

After failing to record a lap in time trials on Sunday, Kyle completed three circuits of his heat race until pulling off. Needing a fourth place finish or better in his B-Main to make the $25,000-to-win finale, Beard passed 12 cars in the 12-lapper but failed to transfer by one spot.
