Chris and Charlie Ware paced the field with Charlie out first on lap one and Brian lawson taking up the chase.
Lawson went around Ware in to the lead. Lawson was leading with Tom Humphries now in second and French Grimes, Jerald Harris and Anthony Linkenhoker all along at the front. Lawson still lead at half way after a quick caution for a slowing car. Lawson took off but Harris was on a charge and got to third and two laps later he was on Humphries.
Harris likes the high line and made his move as the laps clicked away moving around Humphries and a lap later shot to the front by Lawson bring Humphries along. Lawson was now under pressure from Grimes and a lap later Grimes was to third.
Laps were running out and Jerald was still out front as the top five were now all right together with the white flag waving but Harris went alittle to high and was side ways off turn four. Harris gathered it up but now Humphries was on his bumper but held on Jerald Harris flashing under the checkered flag first.
