Steve Shaver of Vienna, W.V. was second, followed by Jimmy Owens of Newport, Tenn., Don O’Neal of Martinsville, Ind., and Ray Cook of Brasstown, N.C.

Bloomquist and Shaver started on the front row of the 50-lap $10,000 to win event.  Bloomquist bolted to the lead and distanced himself from the battle until the only caution of the race appeared on lap 16 for a slowing Chris Wall. On the restart, Bloomquist continued his domination as he pulled away from the hotly contested race for second between Shaver and Owens.
