Jonathon Holstein led the field to the green flag with Jim Foose along side for the green flag.  Holstein would shoot to the lead with Foose on his tailgate.  Foose’s race would take an unexpected turn midway through the race when Steve Buhala made contact with Foose’s #42 and sent both drivers spinning.  Both drivers were able to continue on.
