|7||28ME||Rowland Robinson, Jr.|
|17||93CT||Ray Christian III|
|27||64NH||James Capps III|
The Skinny: Josh Masterson started from the outside of the front row and jumped out to the early lead before a caution slowed the field on lap 2. Dillon Moltz took over the lead on the ensuing restart and held it until a lap 72 restart when Scott Payea used the outside groove to take over the lead. From there, Payea fended off Moltz and pulled away late to score the victory.
Winning Quote: “We had good track position to start the race, picked a few cars off and then fell back a bit trying to let the race come back to us. We caught some yellows after a long run and that put us in position to take the lead from Dillon.” – Scott Payea
Winning Crew Chief: Rick Paya
Winning Chassis: RB Performance
Winning Shocks: KONI
Winning Engine: RPM Engines
On the Move: Rowland Robinson, Jr. started 21st and drove to a seventh-place finish, a gain of 14 spots.
