His win was good for $1,600 and a spot on the bal­lot for the 2016 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.Jeremy Keller and Grimes battled for the lead early in the main event. Keller got the best of that battle while Hellebust passed Taylor for third.Taylor rallied to retake the position and quickly chased down Grimes in pursuit of second. On lap seven, Taylor blew by Grimes and two laps later passed Keller for the lead.While running second, Keller had mechanical problems and brought out the first caution as he limped back to the pits. A series of quick yellows failed to slow Taylor as he pulled away from Grimes and Hellebust on each occasion.On what proved to be the final restart of the night, Taylor quickly distanced himself from the pack while Hellebust tried to hold off Aaron Turnbull for third.Turnbull briefly got off the track on the backstretch which allowed Mike Hansen to pass him for fourth. As they took the white flag, Hansen got a flat right rear tire but a spin in turn one ended the race under caution.Race officials went back to the last completed lap, which made the final top five Taylor, Grimes, Hellebust, Turnbull and Hansen.IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars were new to the Governor’s Cup card and Bob Fuegmann was Friday’s $400 feature winner.
