What Won the Race: Jeremy Davis took over the lead from polesitter Devin O’Connell on lap 1 and led all 85 laps of the rain-shortened race.
The Skinny: Davis was unchallenged for most of the race while the field battled for position behind him. On lap 85, Bryan Kruczek spun in turn two and made hard contact with the outside wall. At that point, rain started to fall from the clouds and the race was called official.
Winning Quote: “I was pretty much just riding out front. I was really good pretty much in the grass on the bottom of one and two, so I just rode around down there. It started getting a little wet so I backed it off a bit.” – Jeremy Davis
