Brad Rouse and Darrell Farraway came together in turn one to slow the field down for the first time.

The restart would see Bellamy take over the lead as Friesen would go to work on Wood for second place.

Lindberg would continue to work his way through the field as he would take over fourth from Friesen on lap 10 and started to move in on third place runner McPherson. The leaders would hit lap traffic at the halfway point as Bellamy would continue to show the way over Wood, McPherson, Lindberg, and Friesen in the top five. Lindberg would catch McPherson on lap 17. Bellamy would pull away from the field and cross the line first. The results are unofficial pending tech. Wood would cross the line in second and was followed by McPherson, Lindberg and Friesen.
