Pickard began to pull away and they approached the halfway point, Pickard was looking at lapped traffic when Dan DeLong scraped the wall as he came down the front stretch and came to a stop in the apex of the turn one wall. Once back underway, Pickard pulled away leaving Dusen and Ries battling for second, with Olger in fourth and Sam Epling breaking into the top five. Olger moved to third. With five to go, Pickard still held a solid lead and once again was looking to duck through lapped traffic. Just as the white flag was about to fall, a caution fell for a car in turn four that negated the huge lead that Pickard held and allowed Olger and Dusen to restart on his bumper. When the green fell, Pickard pulled out to a small lead but Olger stayed close. Pickard was able to hold the lead and secured the win over Olger, Dusen, Scott Baker, Dusen, Epling, Bill Beardslee, Kris Patterson, Jr., Ryan VanderVeen, Scott Philips, and Bill Trueblood, Jr. Trueblood took the B Main event with heats falling to Epling, Pickard, and Keith Gentz.
