A huge pileup on a Lap 5 restart eliminated contenders Joey Pole and Cassius Clark. Angelo Belsito got spun early on while leading which handed the lead over to Griffith. Griffith held the lead for many laps until Belsito worked his way back up to second with less than 30 to go. Belsito had the inside going into turn one, got loose under Griffith and spun while Griffith kept the wheels straight. Shaw challenged Griffith in the final laps but was no match.
“It was a hard race, great racing at the end, DJ was coming. Thought he had a little something for me at the end. I held off to prevail.” -Derek Griffith
