Atlanta Motor Speedway's Thursday Thunder showcased two rounds of feature racing with competitors fighting for needed points entering the final week of the season and also featured the annual Faster Pastor junker-car race.

The OCP Angus Farms Pro feature started with Taylor Hull as the leader. On lap three, points leader Donald McIntosh shot to the front. Hull resumed the top spot on lap 15. On the final lap, McIntosh pushed ahead and the two drag raced to the finish with McIntosh the victor, seizing his third win of the season.

The Masters feature kicked off with Bill Plemmons out front. On lap 13, Plemmons made contact with Bruce Silver, who Plemmons was about to put a lap down. Second-place Ed Clark dodged the incident in front of him and moved into the lead position. Clark held off the other competitors to capture his first Masters feature win of the summer.

William Plemmons III took the green flag to set off the Dixie Home Crafters Semi-Pro feature. Plemmons showed his muscle by fending off the field to grab his second feature win of the season.

Joe Wilder paced the field to the start for the Marco's Pizza Bandits feature. Wilder led every lap of the caution-filled race to claim his first Thursday Thunder feature win.

The Young Lions feature began with A.J. Carlisi on the pole. Points leader Sean Rayhall made a pass for the lead on lap eight. Once out front, Rayhall remained untouchable and posted his sixth feature victory this season.

The Roadster feature had Skip Nichols pacing the field to the green flag, however, by the time the field completed the first circuit, Adam Gay was the point man. Jeremy Kalina, substitute driving for points leader Brian Meredith, made his move to the front on lap four. Kalina logged the win for Meredith.

Taylor Jorgensen was the pole sitter for the Morley Company Outlaws feature. On lap two, Parker Barnes dove inside of Jorgensen and muscled his way to the lead. Barnes collected his first feature victory in his Thursday Thunder career.

After week eight's rain-cancelled features were complete, competitors ran heat races to determine the starting order for the week nine features. Each week the inversion wheel is spun to determine how many cars will be inverted and the wheel landed on the number four, so the top-four cars are reversed for the start.

Chris Dilbeck was the pole sitter for the OCP Angus Farms Pro feature. Dilbeck took advantage of the top starting position, leading every lap and scoring his first Pro win since 2005.

The Masters feature opened with Ed Clark as the starter. On lap two, Brian Weimer got a fender inside of Clark, moving up to the top spot. Weimer logged his second win of the summer season.

The Dixie Home Crafters Semi-Pro feature launched with Garrett Smithley on the pole. R.S. Senter was the point man by the time the field completed the first lap. Senter had a strong showing, leading the entire race to seize his first Thursday Thunder Semi-Pro victory.

Three local churches had entries for the annual Faster Pastor junker-car race: Pastor Jerome Carodine from Victory Outreach Atlanta, Pastor Brooks Everett from Community Bible Church of Stockbridge and Barry Saunders, Director of Children's Ministries from Bethany Baptist Church in McDonough. Carodine earned the pole position due to his congregation bringing the most food to donate to Helping in His Name Food Ministries. 2007 Faster Pastor winner Everett took the early lead and held off Saunders to capture the win, with Carodine in third.

The Marco's Pizza Bandits feature opened with Christopher Tullis pacing the field to the green flag. Due to an on-track incident between Tullis and second-place Alex Coffey, Woodrow Mullis inherited the race lead. Mullis grabbed his first career Thursday Thunder feature win.

Anderson Bowen began the Young Lions feature out front. Mason Massey catapulted to the front on the start to get a big lead on the rest of the field. Massey led every circuit to collect his third Young Lions victory this summer.

The Roadster feature had Jeff Haynie pacing the field to the start. Haynie and Adam Gay swapped the lead back and forth a few times, with Gay coming out on top. Gay claimed his second win of the Thursday Thunder season and his fourth in his Roadster career.

Taylor Jorgensen took the green flag to set off the Morley Company Outlaws feature. John Holleman was the leader when the first lap was completed. Parker Barnes moved to the top spot by lap four. On lap 18, Holleman got in the rear bumper of Barnes, moved past him for the lead and the eventual win. Holleman posted his sixth victory of the Thursday Thunder season.
