After review of the incident, Craig was penalized for rough-driving and scored at the tail end of the field giving the win to early leader Roger Lee Newton (33).
Jodie Connor (45) would round out the podium with a third place effort. Sergeant was scored ninth and Craig credited as the final car on the lead lap in tenth.
Jared Irvan (28), the 2015 Anderson Motor Speedway winner, did not qualify after suffering and oil pump issue in practice. Irvan started 16th and came all the way to cross the line second after the penalty to Craig.
