Although Isaac Lyons technically led every lap, he was by no means the only race leader. As the green flag waved the top four settled into a single file line through turn one with Lyons at the point, Trebing P2, Pigot P3 and Hindman falling back to P4 from second on the grid while the rest of the pack was two by two from P5 on back. The top three were able to pull out a small gap on lap one as the battle for P4 raged on between Hindman, Scott Heckert and Ashley Freiberg. Freiberg was able to take over P4 as Heckert dropped two tires on the outside of one on lap four. The lead trio of Lyons, Pigot and Trebing continued to battle which allowed Freiberg and Hindman to close making it a five car race for the lead just before the halfway point.
On lap fourteen Freiberg made a move up the inside of Pigot for the second spot into turn one. The Illinois resident just got in a little too hot and turned it around at the apex of one luckily being missed by a closely following field. The spin allowed Lyons to grow his lead to a four car length lead with Trebing second, Pigot third and Hindman fourth. Not wanting a repeat of race one, Trebing, Pigot and Hindman stayed in line and were able to track down the leader in a few laps once again making it a four car battle for the lead.
As the white flag waived it was Lyons out front with Pigot second and Trebing third, the lead trio had gapped the rookie Hindman and were battling for the lead on their own. Lyons was able to maintain the lead into one but Pigot was not about to let the lead go that easy. Pigot made a bold move up the inside of three that surprised both Lyons and the crowd in turn three to take the lead. Lyons was able to keep his head down and reeled Pigot back in as they came through the final corner. Lyons had the run out of the downhill and was able to take the victory at the line by only .02 of a second over Pigot with Trebing holding down third. Rookie Trent Hindman capped off a solid first national weekend by taking fourth with fellow rookie Scott Heckert bringing home the fifth spot.
