Fultz had to contend with first, Jeff Henry, who followed Fultz into the first turn at the start. Jake Shady sat in third for a few laps, and then began pressuring Henry for the runner up spot, as Fultz led the field through lapped traffic.

Sixth place starter Dave Satterlee was working the high side of the track, and picking off his competitors one by one, and by the 20 lap he was sitting in third place. With 15 laps to go Satterlee continued to work the high groove, and the top three, Fultz, Shady, and Satterlee were racing under a blanket when Satterlee worked his way to second, and then, still on the outside, he took the lead from Fultz on lap 27 and went on to get the win.

Husted and McClure ran door-to-door then on lap 12, McClure re-assumed the lead, but being the fighter he is, Husted fought back, and re-took the lead on lap 13, he held on through lap 16, and as lap 17 was being completed Mike Stine took the lead, with an inside turn four pass. Stine then went on to get his 7th win of the season. The top five were: Stine, Husted, George Sankey, McClure, and Garvey. Preliminary events went to Mike Stine and George Sankey.
