Day one saw a lot of fast and thrilling finishes especially in the men and women's keirin. In the men's keirin finals, Adam Duvendeck led with one lap to go but couldn't hold it. Local sprinter Giovanni Rey overtook Kelyn Akuna and Adam Duvendeck. Out of nowhere, Giddeon Massie came from the high line and nipped Rey at the line drawing a lot of cheers.

Earlier, Eugene Chacherine (NCNCA Collegiate Champion) took a very hard hit into the cement wall. Even though he returned for a race, he suffered injuries to his right side.

In the women's keirin finals, Jennifer Feathergill held off Larryn Ruegg and Becky Lang to win outright.

In the women's points race, local hero Shelley Olds of Proman Racing had her team work for her and it turned out to be a race for the second. Jennifer Triplett said, "The Proman women did a great job of leading out Shelley Olds each sprint, so it was a race for second. Awesome race to all who raced."

In the Madison race, nine teams showed up, making for a fast and hotly contested event. Daniel Holloway and Ben Barsi-Rhyne of Slipstream set the tempo the whole race. Kenny Williams and Grant Boursaw of First Rate Mortgage tried to keep it close but Holloway was able to grab the points during sprints to put his team out on top.
