Matt Haufe grabbed the lead on the restart with Foisy slotting into second ahead of McCollum, Fiorini, Adam Cuthbertson, and Cole McFadden. Cuthbertson would get alongside Fiorini for fourth at Lap 3 ahead of McFadden, Tyson, and Wesley Cuthbertson. As the pair battled, though, the caution flew the next lap for Massey.
