The yellow flew on lap two for Ben Eckstrom and as the racers slowed for the yellow several cars made contact on the back stretch. Chris Kuschel, Ben Burgess, Tim Nocero, Dan Nocero, Bob Van Arsdale, Kelly Frederes and Joe Buccola Jr. were all involved in the incident. Only nine of the fifteen starters remained.

The fourth caution was for Craig Bedell and Kevin Kohl. Hall moved up the speedway after the restart and rebuilt his ten car length lead over Carlson. Hall made it three in a row continuing his perfect season at Stateline Speedway.

Mike Munsee and Carl McKinney were the early leaders in the second E-Mod feature. A lap three yellow temporarily slowed the event. McKinney and Munsee made contact after the restart ending with Munsee spun in turn three. Ron Seeley inherited the lead with Bret Van Guilder second as Munsee and McKinney were sent to the rear. Seeley led the next two laps with both Quincy Turner and Nate Short giving chase. Wayne Mohawk and Shane Crotty brought out the third yellow on lap five. Turner used the restart to grab the lead from Seeley then yellow number four occurred. Turner, Seeley, Van Guilder, Nate Short and Chad Silleman were the top five.

Gurdak beat Seeley to turn three on lap ten for the second spot then the yellow appeared for Chuck Hart. Gurdak tested Turner on lap twelve but the yellow reappeared for Short and Crotty. It took Gurdak just one lap to pass Turner for the lead. Turner fought back regaining the lead on lap fourteen. A lap sixteen yellow for TJ Downs set up four lap dash for the win.
