High River's Jordie Fike wasn't too far behind either as he finished eighth.
Jason Glass is about three seconds back in 19th spot, while Dayton Sutherland was 26th.
Vigen, John Walters, Vern Nolin, Rick Fraser and Chad Fike round out the top five heading into night two of racing Thursday, August 10.
