The event had one of the closest finishes in the race's history. With roughly seven minutes to go, contact between eventual winner Ricky Taylor and Filipe Albuquerque of Mustang Sampling Racing sent Albuquerque spinning. Albuquerque subsequently ran down Taylor over the final minutes, including trimming the lead by nearly a second and a half on the final lap, but came up short by 0.671 seconds.[1]
