Polesitter Ryan Smith led the first eight laps of the race before Danny Dietrich grabbed the lead away.

After that, a real dogfight for the top spot ensued.

Dietrich was forced to hold three different drivers at bay for much of the rest of the race. In addition to Marks, Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri and Freddie Rahmer were also involved with chances at taking away the lead.

Washington state teenager Devon Borden entered the fray as well, getting as high as fourth, before drifting to a stop with mechanical troubles just two laps from the finish. 

On the restart, Marks took his shot at the lead, taking control as the leaders raced to the white flag with one lap remaining.
