Dash winner Brad Pounds was joined by Mike Kirby on the front row for the 40-lap feature and raced each other hard before Kirby got the edge. Glaser quickly rolled into third and began to close the gap between himself and the leaders, catching Pounds to grab second on lap 10. Nick Bartels also slipped by Pounds for third, but those two got together, sending Bartels into a spin for the first caution on lap 20.

With the Texas double-file restart, it was Kirby out in front of Glaser and Pounds, but Glaser was soon able to reel in the leader and move low on the track to take over the lead on lap 26. Glaser then gradually pulled away to a comfortable margin and would race uncontested for the remainder. Meanwhile, Pounds had recovered to put some heat on Kirby until finally retaking second, where he finished ahead of Kirby, Chris Shannon, and Bobby Hogge.
