With just three laps remaining, Griffin would slide in under Gundaker going into turn one and move up in front of him, but Gundaker would dive back underneath Griffin as they exited turn two and regain the lead. Griffin would get one final shot on the last lap as he drove in hard to turns three and four. Griffin would get along side Gundaker but Gundaker’s momentum would power him back ahead down the front stretch and to victory. Griffin would get second. Last weeks feature winner Mark Oller would finish third. Rick Salter, a UMP DIRTcar Super Late Model competitor who was making his first start in the UMP DIRTcar Pro Late Model division at Tri-City Speedway, would finish fourth.
