Hodnett's win in the 25-lap event was his fourth of the early season. York's Adam Wilt took the early lead from the pole starting position and was challenged frequently by second-place starter Blane Heimbach durin the early stages of the race.

Hodnett quickly entered the battle, creating a three-car dice for the lead. Heimbach took over the top spot on the 10th lap with Hodnett getting control on the 16th lap. However, the race wasn't over, as 13th-place starter Lance Dewease challenged Hodnett at the end. Heimbach finished third with 14th starter Lucas Wolfe and Wilt in the top five.

Rounding out the top 10 were Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Brent Marks, Dover's Austin Hogue and Doug Esh.

In the 20-lap feature for the 358 sprints, Doug Hammaker led all the way to best York's Glenndon Forsythe. Kevin Nouse finished third, while apparent fourth-place finisher Matt Campbell of Fawn Grove failed to report to the scales and was dropped to the end of the lead-lap scoring. Tyler Esh was then awarded fourth place with Hellam's Adrian Shaffer in fifth.

Rounding out the top 10 were JB Cunningham, Hanover's Troy Wagaman Jr., Ryan Linder, Cody Fletcher and Chandler Leiby.
