Following the 12th-fastest qualifying effort, Ricky passed two cars in his heat race to finish second. Starting the $22,022-to-win A-Main in sixth, Thornton slipped over the turn-two banking while running in sixth on that ninth circuit that sent him on his roof. He was able to walk away from the light roll-over unharmed.

Ricky is currently fifth in the latest Castrol FloRacing Night in America point standings.
