Young Michael Smith # 9 was in tow followed by Dakota Stevens # 79 Sean Namor # 10n and Scotty Adema # 67. Adema was again working the high side. Scotty caught the # 79 and # 9 and made a beautiful move to shoot bye the dueling pair of Rookies on lap 6.
Sean Namor was steadily working his way thru the pack as he came up on the 2 Rookie drivers who themselves battling for position. RC Roper in the # 92 who got shuffled to the back was now decisively working his way towards the front. Travis Bleimeister in the # 3b from Sarasota dropped out with brake troubles on lap 8. This was Travis's first pavement race ever.
