Dohm and Scott James battled side by side for the lead at the start, with track points leader R. J. Conley quickly joining the mix. Conley got by James and began to battle Conley side by side for the lead for several laps until Conley spun his #71c machine off of turn two on lap seven. Conley’s car suffered no damage, but he would have to go to the tail.

In the meantime, seventh starter Carrier moved into the second position, where he would restart right behind Dohm. He quickly went to battle with Dohm at the restart as the two battled side by side for the lead. The battle lasted for several laps, with Carrier making the pass for the lead by the race's halfway mark.
 
With Carrier leading, James moved back into the second position and battled the leader, working the bottom of the track. On the final lap, James drove his car hard into turn three, but high side momentum would carry Carrier off of turn four and to the checkered flag. James finished second, with Delmas Conley, Rod Conley, and Dohm following. Rounding out the top ten were Ben Adkins, Josh Bocook, Mark Frazier, Paul Davis, and Steve Lucas.
