Moyer survived an attrition-filled feature to claim the unprecedented eighth triumph. Moyer received several challenges throughout the feature as well as some close calls in lap traffic. At the checkered flag he would claim the $20,011 win by six car lengths over Bub McCool, Eric Cooley (started 15th), Brian Rickman (started 21st), and Morgan Bagley (started 25th).

In the Crate Late Model division a great race was contested as Jeremy Shaw from Millport, Ala. battled past early leader Chris Ragan on lap nine to take the lead and had to fight off a late race, three-wide battle for the lead with Mike Boland and Justin McRee to claim the $2,500 win. Boland, McRee, Dougie King, and Cliff Williams rounded out the top five at the checkered flag.
Two-time event champion, Chris Wall from Springfield, La., started the night by qualifying fastest with a lap of 13.589 seconds. Heat race wins went to Billy Moyer, Neil Baggett, Wendell Wallace, Bub McCool, Dane Dacus, and Jay Burchfield claim the wins.
