The Skinny: 

Johnny Sauter appeared to have the fastest car at the beginning of the race, but a little after halfway Ty Majeski came alive and was able to cross the finish line, holding off a fast Dan Fredrickson. Sauter led the beginning portion of the race while Fredrickson took tires and tore his way through the field. Ultimately, nobody could come close to Majeski.

Winning Quote:

“I wanted to take the lead and control the race to force (Fredrickson and Sauter) to pass me.”

Winning Crew Chief: 

Toby Noodleman

On the Move:

Griffin McGrath started 21st, and came to life toward the end to finish in 7th place.

Biggest Loser:

Jim Sauter Jr. started the day in 5th, but struggled to a 21st place finish.
