Zack Olger, Rusty Schlenk and Kevin Reeve raced three-wide for the lead on the first lap with Olger having a slight advantage. Eventually Reeve slipped back leaving Olger and Schlenk to battle with the 55 car of Jeep Van Wormer closing in.
In the 25-lap ALMS feature, VanWormer would jump into the lead from his pole-starting position and would never be challenged. Rusty Schlenk would run second the entire race, with the real action taking place from third through 10th.
At the checkered, VanWormer would take the win followed by Schlenk, eighth starting Duane Chamberlain, Doug Drown and current ALMS point leader Brian Ruhlman rounding out the top five.
