While McCool paced the field, Kyle Beard was on the move from his 5th-starting spot and by the midway point he was up the runner-up spot. In the closing laps Beard pressured McCool for the lead, but would be unable to overtake the Vicksburg, Mississippi driver.

McCool claimed the $2,000 victory for his 5th-career victory with the CCSDS. Beard, Austin Rettig, B.J. Robinson and 15th-starting Timothy Culp rounded out the top five finishers.
