When the green waved it was Bill Bill Smith taking charge for the first few laps until Jimmy Baker and Smith crossed the line on lap three with Smith over Baker by just a half a car length. But it was on the very next lap as Smith was trying to hold off Baker and found himself spinning out in turn four putting him to the tail end of the field. On the restart it was Baker leading with Brett Phillips and Mike Wilson the top three. Baker did everything he could to hold off the field but it was on lap fourteen as Mike Wilson would take over the lead coming out of turn four and going on to win the feature.
