Flemke won the Bud Pole Award for being the fastest qualifier and then drew the number one starting position for the Riverhead 200 at Riverhead Speedway on Saturday. He went on to lead all 200 laps from the pole en route to picking up his second NFMS win of the season. Flemke, driving a Pontiac, earned $8,650 for the win. The win was Flemke's 13th of his career in the series. 

Twenty-eight cars took the green flag Saturday afternoon on the 1/4-mile Riverhead bull-ring.

Despite nine cautions for 53 laps, Flemke maintained the race lead throughout to take the win and pocket the $8,650 top prize. Finishing in second place, 1.1 seconds behind Flemke, was seventh starting John Fortin. Fortin collected $3,405 for his runner-up finish. Eddie Brunnhoezl wound up third, while pocketing $2,470.

Twelve of the 28 starters finished the race on the lead lap. Rounding out fourth through 12th were: Ted Christopher, Chuck Hossfeld, Robbie Summers, Todd Szegedy, Jamie Tomaino, Bill Park, Howie Brode, Chris Kopec and Greg Shivers.
