Mike Franklin led the most laps with 141, going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 2 cautions with 10 lead changes and there was 1 disqualification with 2 disconnects in a 25 car field ending with Mike Franklin capturing his 10th win of the season with Mike Schrader finishing 2nd, Josh Mayeu 3rd and Jim Westerfield capturing 4th.
