Striegel made things interesting at the front challenging Schultz for several laps and through a series of yellow flags by lap 12 with Schultz still clinging on to the lead over Striegel and Brill. The last fourth of the race was slowed by several cautions as Schultz eventually fought off all challengers for the win. Striegel was strong until a handful of laps to go as he encountered problems in turn four, relegating himself to the pit.
