From Kern County Raceway Park – Cole Adamo of Taft led the opening two laps of the second 35 before yielding to fourth starting Wilson. Adamo fell into a long side-by-side duel with fourth in points Racin Vernon that ended dramatically on lap 24. Vernon and Adamo collided in turn four, sending Adamo sideways and Vernon up and over the top of him. Vernon slid down the frontstretch on his roof for several hundred feet. The young driver was uninjured but the dramatic accident also gathered up John Piker and Trevor Schlundt who made hard contact trying to avoid.
