Returning on Friday for the Tribute to Don & Billie Gibson, Mitchell fell one spot short of a transfer position in his heat race with a 4th place finish.

On Saturday evening after bad weather pushed back the 25th annual Show-Me 100 to Sunday, Mitchell decided to pack up and head home after he was slated to start near the tail of his consolation event.
