Mike Sabia was 6th, Jimmy Spellmon 7th, Charles Loiodice 8th, Tanner VanDoren 9th and Billy VanInwegen 10th.

On the restart, Hentschel again got out to a healthy lead until the caution flag again flew after 7 were down. Back in the pack, VanInwegen from 10th and Perrego from 16th were making big gains towards the front. Henstchel led on the restart, but VanInwegen was able to get by on lap 9. When caution flew on lap 13, Perrego was now 2nd and he took the lead on the restart. Perrego continued on to take his 2nd win of the night, this one by a margin of 2.9 seconds over Billy V. VanDoren advanced from 9th to take 3rd with Hentschel finishing 4th and Steuer 5th. Joey Bonetti was 6th with Bob McGannon 7th, Creeden 8th, Corey Cormier 9th and Chris Stevens 10th.

There were no further changes in the standings the remaining laps as Poirier came home the winner by about 1/2 a second over Swiernik with Donath finishing 3rd.
