While the field got away clean at the start, it didn’t take long before several drivers had issues when on Lap 2, first Bryan Carey went off course, then Ray Kingsbury spun with Jacob Oster doing the same. Carey would find trouble again just a few turns later receiving front end damage requiring him to pit.

Rounding out the Top 10 were Eik, Riley Thompson, Jason Brophy, Chris Stofer and Robert Maleczka III in 10th.
