Kevin Gobrecht looked like the man to beat after picking up three spots at the drop of the green. Kevin picked up two more spots, moving him to 7th after two laps. The yellow flag flew after the completion of two laps for Jeff Rohrbough and Chris Eash as they tangled in turn four. Eash, who leads the battle for the track championship was unable to continue. Gobrecht was moved back to 8th for the restart.
Brian Monteith continued to lead the way in the 12B car but Keith Kauffman was able to put on the pressure by the mid point in the race. Kauffman passed Monteith for the lead on lap thirteen. After 15 laps the order was Kauffman, Monteith, Wentz, Kreitz, and Cliff Brian. On lap 22, Kevin Gobrecht spun in turn four, having been in a fierce battle with both of the Brian brothers, Cliff and Billy. The yellow flag allowed Don Kreitz to close the gap that Kauffman had put between himself and the rest of the field.
As Don said in the victory lane interview, he never would have won the race without the yellow for Gobrecht's spin. Don also said that he was still experiencing some pain from his mid-season accident and that it would be two weeks before he was back to 100 percent. This is Don's third week back since his return and it's good to see he didn't forget the way to victory lane.
