Jarvenpaa wasted no time taking the lead. Joel Monahan in the 03 followed Jarvenpaa around Rivera. Lap 3 would bring out the first caution flag of the event with the 62 of Joe Kendall came to rest on the backstretch with a flat tire. Jarvenpaa and Monahan led the field to the green on the restart. Jarvenpaa resumed the lead but Monahan was glued to his rear bumper. Monahan kept providing pressure for the lead but was on unable to make a move to get past Jarvenpaa. Lap 33 brought out the caution again this time for the 99 of Kim Rivet spinning. Jarvenpaa and Monahan brought the field to the green again but before a lap could be completed the caution flew again this time for Rivera spinning on the front stretch. Jarvenpaa and Monahan tried it again. This time they raced side by side for the lead; during this battle Keith Carzello took his #8 machine to 3rd. On lap 36 Monahan finally wrestled the lead away from Jarvenpaa. Lap 37 would bring the final caution of the race as Rivera would spin once more. The field would restart single file with Monahan pacing the field. Monahan held on to take the win followed by Jarvenpaa (2nd) and Carzello (3rd).
