Feature Re-cap: When the 20-lap feature got underway it was Davenport who surged to the lead on the lightning fast track with Madden jumping up to second and Owens, Junghans and Ferguson rounding out the top-5. A caution for debris slowed the action just after the completion of the first circuit.

On the restart, Davenport again went immediately to the lead with Madden trailing. Further back, Junghans and Strickler got by Owens for third and fourth.

A second yellow flag waved on lap 5 for the slowing car of Janousek. Everyone held station on the lap 5 restart with Madden keeping Davenport in his sights. However, another caution flag would be displayed on lap 10 for the slowing car of Leonard.

As the laps clicked away, Madden stayed within striking distance of Davenport, but again, a caution would wave on lap 14. With three laps to go, Madden closed right to the rear spoiler of Davenport but was never able to make a move for the race lead.

In the end, it was Davenport who would claim his second XR Super Series win of 2022.
