Scott Beyer took the early lead right away in the late model feature. A caution came out on lap three with Todd Stapleman spinning in the turn. At the restart, the first four cars took the green, then a huge crashed ensued. Doug Drost spun, with Scott Brandt and MG Gajeweski hitting the wall in the front straight. Both drivers were thankfully all right. Brandts and Gajewskis cars had some extensive damage. At the restart Beyer resumed the lead with Chris Wimmer right behind him.
Another fast runner, Mike Budleski was right behind Wimmer looking at stealing the position away. Beyer held on as long as he could, but Wimmer overtook the lead by the tenth lap. Wimmer started pulling ahead way away from the pack.
Beyer, Budleski, and Jeremy Lepak fought to get around one another. Allen Check started moving up to join the lead positions. Wimmer started to lap slower cars, as he motored ahead. Wimmer held on to his tremendous lead and took the checkered with Beyer in second and Budleski in third.
