Volpe regained the lead due to the yellow and Hedman was placed back to second, Hackett and Valone were third and fourth. Volpe was able to move away from Hedman on the restart and Dave Hess Jr. was third from his twelfth starting spot. With ten laps complete Volpe had half a straight away lead over Hess in second. Hedman lost another spot this time to John Lobb. Ed Carley slowed to a stop in turn one bringing out the yellow with thirteen of the twenty five laps complete. Volpe stayed low on the restart and lost the lead to Hess on the back stretch. With five laps to go Hess had a comfortable lead over Volpe. As the white flew Hedman touched wheels with Valone and crashed nearly head on into the turn three wall. Hedman was okay but his car left the speedway behind a wrecker.

As Moore held off a challenge from point leader Kelly Frederes, Moynihan and Green became hooked together for caution six. Another incident on the lap eleven restart caused caution seven. With six laps to go Steve Kania passed Frederes for the runner up spot. Himes spun with three laps remaining for caution eight. Moore beat Kania to the checkers by two car lengths for his first win of the season.

Chris Couchenour and Darren Tarabori at one end of the speedway and Rich Michael Jr. at the other end brought out the first caution as the leaders crossed the start finish line to end lap one. The restart ended abruptly after contact collected John Woodward Jr., Alex Froman, Kyle Bradigan and Mike Eschrich. Carlson just nipped Brent Rhebergen to lead lap two with Rhebergen the clear leader on lap six. $500 dollars was on the line for the lap nine leader as that was Turners number. Teammates Mike Knight and Rich Gardner tangled on lap eight with eight laps complete. Rhebergen was the leader followed by Carlson, Joel Watson, John Boyd and Dave Hess Jr. Rhebergen led lap nine to pocket the $500 dollar bonus the one lap later Bradigan brought out the fourth caution. Caution five marred the restart as Michael spun coming to the green. Hess passed Carlson for third with fifteen laps remaining in the event. Rhebergen was running the inside with Hess high. Hess was second just before Couchenour had more problems bringing out yellow number six. Hess continued to press Rhebergen as the laps began to run down. With five laps remaining Hess was two car lengths behind Rhebergen. Rhebergen had mechanical troubles with two to go and Watson passed Hess to grab the lead. Watson remained in the low groove for the final circuit and Hess could not get enough momentum to make the pass.
