Tom Walters jumped out to the early lead ahead of Davey, Mombourquette, Tiemersma, and Weeda, as Constable and Herb Walters ran side-by-side for sixth ahead of Passer, Archibald, and Holmes. Weeda then got alongside Tiemersma for fourth at lap 5, completing the pass two laps later as Constable cleared Walters for sixth. Passer would move up to sixth on Lap 8 ahead of Walters and Archibald. Semple then got alongside Archibald for eighth at Lap 9, with Semeraro alongside Holmes for 10th.

Passer’s climb forward continued as he got alongside Constable for fifth at Lap 10, with Weeda getting alongside Mombourquette for third a lap later. Weeda would clear Mombourquette on Lap 12 to move up into third.

With 13 laps on the board, Tom Walters led Davey, Weeda, Mombourquette, Tiemersma, Passer, and Herb Walters, as Semeraro and Constable ran side-by-side for eighth. Semeraro got the spot on Lap 16, with Semple getting alongside Constable next.

Weeda continued his climb forward, passing Davey to move into second on Lap 16. Mombourquette continued to run fourth ahead of Tiemersma, Passer and Semeraro, with Semple and Herb Walters side-by-side for eighth ahead of Holmes. Semple got the spot on Lap 19, with Passer getting alongside Tiemersma for fifth a lap later.

The battle for fifth didn’t go smoothly with contact happening on Lap 21 as Tiemersma tagged Passer. This in turn didn’t work out well for Tiemersma, as both Passer and Semeraro slipped by. Semeraro then tagged Passer in turn one on Lap 22, getting alongside for the sixth spot. Tiemersma now ran eighth ahead of Semple, Holmes, and Herb Walters. Semple would then get alongside Tiemersma for eighth at Lap 25.

With four laps to go, Semeraro’s climb continued as he got alongside Mombourquette for fourth, completing the pass one lap later. Passer would get by Mombourquette for fifth at Lap 28, with Semple looking for way by next. Unfortunately, Mombourquette’s feature went away on the last lap, as contact from Tiemersma sent the No. 6m spinning around in turns three and four. Notably, the officials would deem Passer the cause, sending him to the tail for the restart.

The first attempt at a restart saw another caution, with Archibald spinning Herb Walters in turn three.

The second attempt went cleanly with Tom Walters getting the win ahead of Mike Weeda, Frank Davey, Stefan Semeraro, Ryan Semple, Gerrit Tiemersma, Justin Holmes, Coltin Everingham, Ethan Constable, Brandon Passer, Herb Walters, Dan Archibald, Johnny Morrison, and William Hughes. Dustyn Mombouruqette would round out the field of cars on the lead lap after making significant contact with the wall on the last lap, courtesy of a three-wide battle.
