The first of nine cautions would wave on lap three when fifth place running Howell would slow in turn four with a flat left-rear tire. The restart would not see a lap completed as Nick Bocook would spin in turn one and would spin again in turn four on the next attempted restart and would be done for the night. Action would finally resume with Fouts staying out front, followed by R.J. Conley, Casebolt, and Hawkins, while Michael Chilton and Zach Hill would settle into a battle for the fifth position, trading the spot a couple of times before Hill claimed it on lap five. Hill’s run would end on lap eight when he slowed suddenly on the backchute, leaving Chilton now where to go and Chilton would make heavy contact with the rear of the Hill machine, ending the race for both drivers. The restart would see Fouts again get a great restart, trailed by R.J. Conley and Steve Casebolt, while Rod Conley would jump into fourth, and Hawkins would be fifth.

Debris on the frontchute would null and void the next restart and when action resumed, Fouts, R.J. Conley, and Casebolt would hold the top three spots, while Rod Conley and Hawkins battled for the fourth spot. Hawkins night would come to an end when he drew the caution on lap twenty-five when he slowed at the top of turn three. The front four remained the same, with Audie Swartz now in fifth, with them running in this order until the final caution waved on lap thirty for a smoking Austin Lay entry. Fouts would continue to lead, while Casebolt would work past R.J. Conley on the restart, while Rod Conley would pressure R.J. Conley for third and take the position on lap thirty-three and Rod Conley would continue his charge as he would take second from Casebolt on lap thirty-seven.
