Roberts and Austin Smith brought the field of 22 to the green
flag for the start of the 35-lapper with Roberts going to the
point early. Smith would go to work on Roberts for the lead
several times in the first couple of laps and by lap five take
the lead away as the field worked closely around the lapped
By lap 13, tenth starting Craig Vosbergen had worked his way
into the top-five by doing a slider on Vic Hill to take the
position meanwhile Dennis Franklin was working his way from
sixth to a podium finish by taking the third spot away from
Billy Ogle Jr. on lap 17.
On lap 20, Roberts had begun to move up the track and make
his presence known on this high side and by lap 21 was back
around Smith for the lead spot. Roberts would stretch out his
lead to over a second towards the end and go on to victory lane
at a track that he had not lost in competition since 2013. Trailing
Roberts at the line was Smith, Franklin, Donald McIntosh and
Four cautions slowed the event. The first yellow flag fell
on lap 12 as Bo Eaton came to a rest on the bottom of the front-chute.
The next yellow flag came on lap 16 as Eaton pun in turn four,
ending his night. The next yellow flag would come on lap 21
as Rob Mayea spun his mount in turn four and on the restart,
four cars got together bringing out the final yellow flag.
