Rounding out the top five were Jimmy Duncan, Marks Parks, defending champion Tyler Bare came from the rear after pitting and Corey Almond. In the Budweiser Modified 25 lap feature James Sparks and Joey Polevoy led the field to green and then waged a side by side battle for the first 10 laps when Brian Maxey joined the battle for the top spot.
