Liberal’s Steven Richardson who lined up 10th moved into the number 6 spot on lap nine as Martens night came to an end one lap later as his mount lost power with Mag problems and coasted to a stop on the front straight bringing out the yellow.

Nichols inherited the lead on the restart and started putting distance between himself and Johnson with 9th starting Stu Snyder getting by Taylor for 5th on lap 12. A rim riding Nichols made a mistake one lap later and fell off the edge of turn two allowing Johnson and Williams by and relegating him to third. One lap later Johnson also fell off of turn two and tipped over bringing out the only red.

On the restart it was Williams, Nichols, Richardson, Snyder and Taylor bringing the field to the green. Nichols started putting pressure on Williams as Zach Blurton wrestled his way by Taylor by lap 16 and Snyder moved by Richardson one lap later.
