Hannagan was able to continue on and held off Daggett for the win.

After two laps were scored Chris Andrews spun, keeping the field close with Kody Kinser leading Lay, Thomas, Dane Lorenc and Stuart Brubaker. Lay powered into the lead on lap five as the caution flew for Dustin Ingle.

Henry flashed the nose of his car under Thomas at the five laps to go single with Foos, Lay, Martin and Lorenc giving chase. Foos challenged Henry for second on lap 27 and with two laps to go Thomas, Henry and Foos ran nose to tail.
