Jesse Snyder took the Semi Late lead at the start,  but was heavily hounded by  first Travis Calhoun and later  Brian Weyandt Jr who arrived from deep in the pack.     Several early cautions slowed the beginning laps, but no one really threatened the top two.  But while they held sway on every restart, all eyes were on Tont Catlett, who was knifing through the field after starting dead last.

Drake Troutman was on the pole  by the luck of the draw and jumped out to the early  lead.  With Troutman using the cushion,  Rine tried the bottom several times before  they switched lanes and Rine blew by on lap 10.   The field was slowed only two laps later  when several cars got together in turn 4 after several cars got tied up with Kyle Lee while Lee was slowing to go pitside.  It would be the only caution in the event.
