On the 20th lap, DeVolder would pull alongside Hogge and get the lead out of turn four as they completed the 21st lap. Staying patient, Hogge continued to run his same line as was there to pounce when DeVolder tripped on the cushion on the 22nd lap and reassumed the race lead.
Back in front, Hogge would turn in flawless laps as he went on to pick up the win.
Behind him, Nick DeCarlo would overtake DeVolder to finish second, DeVolder would finish third, while Robby Sawyer and Paul Stone rounded out the Top-5.
