What Won the Race:

Tyler Roahrig and Doug True duked it out side by side for three laps before Roahrig was able to take over the lead.

The Finish:

On lap 100 Tyler Roahrig ran his fastest lap of the night.

The Skinny:

Doug True started fourth in the field and quickly found his way up to the lead. He had a substantial lead over the field until lapped traffic started to play a factor.

Jeff Ganus who was in the runner up spot was able to close the gap on True as the back of the back bunched up in front of the leaders. This also allowed Roahrig to close in on Ganus.

Roahrig was able to get around Ganus and went to work on the leader. Roahrig and True battled door to door for about three laps before the no. 24 machine was finally able to complete the pass and give Tyler Roahrig his first Intimidator 100 win.

Caution lap 29: Bill Tomlinson takes a spin at the entrance of turn four.

 

Jeff Ganus has moved into the second spot on the track at the half way mark. He has just over a second and a half to make it to the back bumper of leader Doug True.

 

One of the favorites, Tyler Roahrig has climbed to the third spot after starting from deep in the field in the 14th spot.

 

Lap 73- Jeff Ganus and Tyler Roahrig are able to close the gap on the leader of True as they attempt to make their way around lapped traffic. In the lap Roahrig gets around Ganus for the runner up position on the track.
