Just after Half way the caution flag flew again for another spin in turn one. On the second restart, Teske gave Wallace a run for his money as he tried numerous times to get him on the inside. Loch took advantaged of the situation and pulled away from Egan and drafted Wallace ahead of Teske. Loch took the second spot away from Teske while Conrad Morgan broke into the top five as the caution waved on lap 66.

Following the restart while running in third Dave Teske car broke and nearly hit the turn 3 & 4 wall, ending his best run this season. The remaining 20 laps were pressuring laps as Rich Loch made a run on the inside, but came up short. Al Schill started from the rear of the field, after his Semi feature transfer for third spot.
