RaceEdit

SummaryEdit

Grant Enfinger started on pole, but Sheldon Creed took the lead within the first turn and pulled away. He eventually held a two-second lead over Enfinger and won Stage 1.

With 5 laps remaining in Stage 2, Enfinger and Brandon Jones tangled together while battling for the lead. Enfinger dove underneath Jones but lost control and ended up pulling them both into the outside wall. Matt Crafton won the stage under caution. Tyler Ankrum passed Crafton soon after the caution and dominated until he had to pit and was overtaken by Brett Moffitt. He then led for 10 laps until Dylan Lupton and Crafton both took the lead on separate occasions.

Brett Moffitt retook the lead on lap 125, but had to pit for fuel on the final lap. This gave the lead to Ankrum, who ultimately led a race-high 40 laps. Ankrum won the race with a 7-second lead over runner-up Stewart Friesen (who had to start in a backup truck).
