Seventeen cars lined up for the 20 lap feature race with Danny Brown pacing the field to the green. Unfortunately, it would take several tries to get a single lap in. On the first try, three cars would tangle in turn one with Elias Anderson, Jeremy Davenport, and Shawn Obanon caught up in it. Davenport would have take his car to the pits, but would return later. On try number two, Marlin Samford would spin in turn two and bring out the caution. Try three was better as the field, lead by Brown would complete a lap. But it wouldn't last long, as the Samford and Obanon cars would bring out a caution on lap two by spinning in turn two. Again the field would get a lap in, only to get halted on lap three for Samford again, spinning in turn two. Samford would take his car to the pits. The restart wasn't kind to the racers as yellow flew again, this time for a spin by Bobby Grobe. He would have to start at the back for the next restart. The running order at this point was Brown, Chris Carrol, Adan Arambula, Steve Whiteaker Jr, and Anderson. Another yellow would slow the race as Greg Dinsmore spun in, you guessed it, turn two. The cars would get several laps in after restarting. On lap six, Whiteaker Jr would take over third. As the cars came to the crossed flags, the top five were, Brown, Carrol, Whiteaker Jr. Anderson and Arambula. Caution would wave on lap twelve as Obanon and Davenport got tangled up in turn four. After restarting, the cars made two more laps until Obanon spun in turn four and the yellow rag waved on lap fourteen. The Obanon car as blacked flagged into the pits. The running order was the same on lap 14, as it was on lap ten. On lap fifteen, Anderson would get under Whiteaker Jr and the two raced side by side for third place. A lap latter, they would be three wide going into turn one as the two caught Carrol in second. Anderson would take over second with Whiteaker Jr, in third, and Carrol was shuffled back to fourth. As the white flag flew, Whiteaker Jr, would move to the high side and pick off Anderson for second, then he chased down the leader Brown and made if very interesting coming to the checkered flag. Brown would hold off Whiteaker and win his first race of the season.
