Last week’s winner Steve Navratil (#55 Super Tint) starting at the back of the pack.
As the green flag dropped Degeer successfully fended off Warbutton trying to pass on the outside, by lap 2 Warbutton had been shuffled back to 3rd behind Grimes. The next couple of laps had Warbutton passing Grimes down low and then working on Degeer finally making the pass, on the low side, taking Grimes with him.
Meanwhile back in the field Navratil was working his way up to the front as Degeer faded and finally pulling off the track on the 23rd lap.
“I had something in the steering not right”, said Degeer, “ I tried to keep going but then something broke I got off before I caused a wreck.”
At the checkered flag it was Warbutton, Grimes, Fletcher, Navratil and Mason the top 5. - - - Results
