Dave Calaman and Fred Rahmer got together in T1 causing Calaman to flip on lap 7. Rahmer continued while Calaman's night was over. On lap 22 Chris Eash tangled with a backmarker and spun out of a comfortable lead. Hodnett, who had been running third, had a tire go flat in turn 4 on the last lap. Dale Blaney, who had been racing Hodnett for third, had to lift to avoid hitting Hodnett. This allowed Todd Shaffer to pass both Hodnett and Blaney to take third place. Hodnett ended up finishing ninth.
