(Fast Shaft/ Drive Shafts) Starting from the pole after the redraw Moyer would jump to the early lead but by lap 4 a charging Tim Manville was pressuring hard for the lead. But by lap 8 Manville had slipped back and it was the small cool one of Bobby Pierce door to door with Mr. smooth Billy Moyer. They would stay in a heated battle until lap 18 when the first caution would come out for debris. Moyer would jump back out to a small lead with Pierce,Manville, Brian Shirley now in 4th, and Payton Looney rounding out the top five. By lap 25 Moyer and Pierce had pulled away a bit with Manville and Shirley racing hard for position as well. With Moyer and Pierce battling hard and swapping the lead a caution would come out again on lap 34 after Joe Godsey got into the wall and Kieth  Rumble got turned around on the back stretch. The restart would see Pierce get into the front straightaway wall and slow but not before collecting the 15 of Payton Looney and flipping Pierce onto his roof also collecting the 6k of Michael Kloos. The next restart would see Manville have problems and tang the wall, slowing him and bringing yet another caution as he pulled off ending his night.
