Neither driver was injured and Kruseman was able to restart, finishing one position ahead of Gardner. Sherman and the Jake Sourant entry were trailed at the checkered flag by Danny Sheridan, Rickie Gaunt, Blake Miller and Mike Spencer.

Jesse Hockett of Warsaw, Mo. earned his first USAC/CRA Sprint victory Friday at USA Race Park in Tucson, Ariz., leading the last seven laps after passing Brad Sweet on lap 24. Hockett and his Jim Massey entry were followed by fast qualifier Kruseman, Casey Shuman, Spencer and Miller.
