Austin McDaniel started the race from the outside pole position, and quickly challenged #43 of Lefevers for first.

 

 

The caution flag fell on lap 15 as the #35 of Devin Jones slowed on the track. On the restart the #4 of Rhodes looked to the inside of the #28 of Jasper for fourth, finally making the pass on lap 30. Meanwhile, McDaniel continued to challenge LeFevers as the two drivers fought back-and-forth for the lead.

McDaniel took the lead on lap 34 and slowly pulled away from the rest of the field.

 

 

The final caution of the night fell on lap 67 due to the #94 of Cox spinning out in turn three. After the restart, it was a three man show between LeFevers, Moon and McDaniel. LeFevers knocked McDaniel into the wall exiting turn two taking the lead on lap 82 as Moon used this to his advantage quickly taking the second spot. Using this momentum, Moon went on to challenge LeFevers during the final laps of the race. The fans were on their feet, watching as it came down to the finish line with LeFevers winning the race by less than a car length. Kyle Moon finished in a close second with Austin McDaniel in third.
