Feature Re-cap: The 40-lap feature got underway with Gundaker leading Hoffman, Blair, Pierce and Madden. Hoffman wasted no time as he took the lead away from Gundaker on the second circuit. Further back, English and Madden were exchanging the fifth spot.
Hoffman was in the process of getting away from the second place battle between Gundaker and Blair until a lap 10 caution for Dustin Walker slowed the pace.
On the lap 10 restart, Gundaker and Blair fought over second before Blair claimed the position on lap 13. Just behind, Madden took fourth from Pierce with English closing in. Once more, Hoffman pulled away from the pack by the halfway mark.
Hoffman found himself trapped behind slower traffic which allowed Blair to close from second but a caution for the stalled car of Santee put the racing action on pause on lap 25. Pierce went back to fourth on the restart then to third one lap later.
As the laps clicked inside of 10 to go, Hoffman appeared in control as the most cars hugged the bottom lane of the speedway. However, the leader caught the tail of the field which allowed Blair and Pierce to gain ground. But in the end, it was Hoffman who would claim the victory.
