Corey Strawn won the sixth heat ahead of Steve Finnegan, Brad Lavalle, Ben Gruntz, Michael Neumeister, Kyle Fetterly, and Joshua Munro.

The seventh heat featured a quick caution due to an incident in turn one involving Kyle Clint and Jeremy Kelly. Ryan Oosterholt won the seventh heat ahead of Dave Feeney, Jack Hannah, Scott Simpson, Jacob Kelly, Stephen Bierworth, Clint, and Glen Smit.

Kris Khan won the eighth heat ahead of Phil Givens, Shawn Soloman, Michael Feeney, Colin Parkes, Russ Couture, the 33x, and Andrew Massey.

Jeremy Kelly took the b-main win ahead of Russ Couture, Joshua Munro, and Stephen Bierworth to transfer to the main event. Kyle Clint and Glen Smit unfortunately failed to transfer.

Come feature time, Ryan Oosterholt started pole ahead of Kris Khan, Chris Tubman, Kyle Neumeister, Corey Strawn, Shawn Solomon, Dave Feeney, Phil Givens, Kyle Novis, Kyle Fetterly, Jacob Kelly, Steve Finnegan, Michael Neumeister, Jack Hannah, Ben Gruntz, Michael Feeney, Connor Parkes, Nick Clarke, Eric Stewart, Gary Foude, Doug Strickland, Scott Simpson, Colin Parkes, Jeremy Kelly, Russ Couture, Joshua Munro, and Stephen Bierworth.

Ryan Oosterholt broke out to the early lead ahead of Khan, Tubman, Strawn, and Dave Feeney as Neumeister ran sixth ahead of Solomon, Novis, Givens, and Jacob Kelly. Givens would move into eighth on Lap 5, bringing Kelly through with to bump Novis back to 10th. The first caution then came out a lap later for Couture slowing with a problem. With 35 laps to go, Oosterholt led Khan, Tubman, Strawn, Feeney, Neumeister, Solomon, Givens, Kelly, Novis, Michael Neumeister, Gruntz, Hannah, Finnegan, and Fetterly.

Oosterholt got a good restart ahead of Khan and Tubman, with Strawn alongside Feeney for fourth. However, the second caution would come out on Lap 8 for Munro going around in turn one.

Oosterholt got another good restart ahead of Khan and Tubman, with Strawn getting fourth ahead of Feeney, Neumeister, Solomon, Kelly, and Givens. Neumeister would challenge Feeney for fifth on Lap 12, but was unable to complete the pass.

Solomon continued to run seventh ahead of Kelly, Givens, and McDonald, as Michael Neumeister battled Novis for 11th. Michael was never able to compete the pass, though, as he headed down pit road with smoke trailing on Lap 16. This allowed the 6 to challenge Novis for 11th, as Finnegan, Fetterly, and Hannah rounded out the top-15.

Kelly continued to move forward, passing Solomon for seventh on Lap 19, bringing Givens through with him. McDonald ran 10th ahead of Novis and the 6, with the 6 passing Novis on Lap 21. However, the third caution would come out for debris. At the halfway mark, Oosterholt led Khan, Tubman, Strawn, Feeney, Kyle Neumeister, Kelly, Givens, Solomon, Jeremy Kelly, the 6, Novis, Finnegan, Hannah, and Michael Feeney.

The first attempt at a restart produced the fourth caution with Strickland driving into Clarke, turning Clarke around. The second attempt went smoother with Oosterholt leading Khan and Tubman, as Neumeister moved into fourth ahead of Strawn. The fifth caution then came out on Lap 25 due to Clarke hitting the turn four wall.

Due to hitting the time limit, cautions would begin to be counted, so the restart would come at Lap 32 with Oosterholt holding serve ahead of Khan and Tubman, as Strawn got back by Neumeister for fourth, as the Kellys battled for sixth. Jeremy Kelly got the spot on Lap 35, bringing Dave Feeney through with him to bump Jacob Kelly back to eighth ahead of Givens, Hannah, Finnegan, Solomon, Michael Feeney, and Novis.

The race would go smoothly the rest of the way, except for Finnegan spinning Couture on the last lap.

Ryan Oosterholt took the win ahead of Kris Khan, Chris Tubman, Corey Strawn, Kyle Neumeister, Jeremy Kelly, Dave Feeney, Jacob Kelly, Jack Hannah, and Phil Givens. Steve Finnegan finished 11th, followed by Shawn Solomon, Michael Feeney, Kyle Novis, Ben Gruntz, and Kyle Fetterly. Joshua Munro finished as the first car one lap down in 17th ahead of Connor Parkes, Scott Simpson, Gary Foude, Stephen Bierworth, Russ Couture, Colin Parkes, Eric Stewart, Brad Lavalle, Nick Clarke, Doug Strickland, and Michael Neumeister.
