Young Eric Adams was introduced to the drivers and made an honorary member of the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club. Eric was presented with a trophy as a winner in his battle against cancer along with an autographed goody bag and a Latchkey Cup sweatshirt. His family was given a gas card and a grocery card to help offset the extra expenses they have encountered. The donation was funded by the annual Latchkey benefit race held earlier in the season.
Chris Taylor won the Juniors Division. Rick Martel of Moultonborough took the trophy in the Modified Division. Northfield's Tim Chase, racing in his Toyota MR2, again dominated the 4-Cylinder Division. In the V8 Stock Division, Moultonborough's Matt Morrill won both feature races.
