Lap 5 caution for GR Smith. McCreadie leads Davenport, Whitener, Marlar, Moran, Sheppard, Bronson, D Erb

Lap 15 caution. Ross Bailes hit the outside wall going into turn 1 then does a 360 in the air before coming down on all four wheels. Driver looks to be okay. McCreadie was very close to that incident.

McCreadie leads Whitener, Davenport, Moran, Marlar, Sheppard, D Erb, Bronson, Owens, Richards, Bruening, Overton

Lap 30 caution. McCreadie had been maintaining a lead of 8-10 car lengths over a tight battle between Whitener, Davenport and Sheppard. Moran, Marlar, Bronson and Owens run 5-8.

Got a little crazy at the end.

Sheppard and Whitener had contact racing for second which allowed Overton to get by Sheppard. Then Whitener tagged the wall in turn 2 which allowed Overton to pass by. Davenport and Whitener had contact on the last lap which put Whitener in the wall.

Feature Results: 1. Tim McCreadie, 2. Overton, 3. Sheppard, 4. Marlar, 5. Davenport, 6. Moran, 7. Bronson, 8. Owens, 9. D Erb, 10. Clanton, 11. T Erb, 12. Shirley, 13. Richards, 14. Zeigler, 15.

Tim McCreadie is almost certain to be among the Lucas Oil contenders in 2020
