An early caution set the stage for a 15 lap run that would see drivers face tire wear and begin to set up for fuel strategy just before the caution came out.  On the restart wtih the field bunched up a few favorites emerged as Robert Moyer charged through the field joining Daytona winner Stephen Pearce at the front along with Jim Foose’s #42 and Shawn Musick’s #12.
