Hilyer lost several spots on the restart as Kelly Frederes grabbed the lead with Crandall second. Just as point leader Mike Moore moved into third Crandall did a solo spin but the green stayed out. Frederes, Moore and Steve Moynihan were the top three. With two laps to go Moore moved up along side Frederes and they completed the last two laps side by side with Frederes coming to the line just ahead of Moore.
