Hanover’s Dylan Norris got the jump from the pole position and led the first lap of the feature before fellow front-row-starter Freddie Rahmer took over the top spot on the second lap. Rahmer held the top spot until the 26th lap, when Krimes, who started sixth, slipped by for the lead he would never relinquish.
Krimes went on to the win, while York’s Chase Dietz was also able to get by Rahmer for second. Rahmer was third, with 12th-starter Danny Dietrich in fourth and Brandon Rahmer in fifth. Rounding out the top 10 were Billy Dietrich, Tim Shaffer, Tyler Ross, Jim Siegel and Hanover’s Troy Wagaman Jr.
