The Skinny: Johnny Clark and Trevor Sanborn battled for the lead early on before Clark took control of the race just after the Lap 50 mark. Clark held the lead until Ben Rowe took the lead for the first time on Lap 108. Clark battled back to take the lead a few laps later before Rowe claimed the lead for good on a Lap 123 restart.
Winning Quote: “Bubba (Pollard) always told me that these cars were always built for banked tracks with some grip. That thing was flawless.” – Ben Rowe
Winning Crew Chief: Ricky Rolfe
Winning Chassis: Senneker Performance
On the Move: Dillon Moltz started shotgun on the field in 27th after having to swap engines following the second practice session. After missing his heat race and starting last, Moltz charged to a third-place finish, a gain of 24 positions.
Biggest Loser: Dan Winter started sixth after a strong run in his qualifying heat, but he only completed 31 laps in the feature and finished 24th, a loss of 18 positions.
