Justin Blackdeer led the field the green flag for the 100 lap main event.  Blackdeer led the race’s first 40 laps before handing the lead to Ben Nile. Nile led until the race’s first caution on lap 54 as Lee Staples was sent spinning after contact from Justin Fuller.  Championship leader Jim Foose and current runner-up Matt Vaade received damage in the incident.  The field hit pit road, except for Vaade, who remained on the track to gain a point for leading a lap.
