With 20 Late Models entered for the event raising money for the Delaware State Police, Bryan’s sixth-place finish in his heat race pinned him on the sixth row for the $5,500-to-win A-Main. Wheeling his way into the top-five, Bernheisel gained eight positions in the 50-lap affair to register a fourth-place finish. He trailed Ross Robinson, Rick Eckert, and Trevor Collins to the checkers with Jamie Lathroum completing the Top-5 finishers.
The following night for prelims to kick off the Mid-Atlantic Championship, Bernheisel timed in fourth-fastest overall before placing third in his heat.
Earning the fifth-starting position for Saturday’s $7,000-to-win finale via the redraw, Bryan held onto a ninth-place finish after experimenting with his setup before the 40-lapper.
