Mike Clark went out early on Lap 13 with mechanical issues.  Wayne Rogers would hold 2nd until Lap 41 until Scott Harper would move into 2nd. Woody Trimble would go a lap down right before the fuel stop at Lap 75.

Lap 75 order was Jerry Evans 1st, Scott Harper 2nd, Wayne Rogers 3rd all on same lap and Woody Trimble 4th.
Jerry would retain 1st until Lap 107 as the track started losing traction and Jerry spun putting Scott 1st. The loose conditions continued thru the balance of the Main with all the drivers having trouble holding the race line.

It took Jerry until Lap 141 to get back out front getting past Scott Harper for position. Scott kept the pressure on Jerry staying right on his tail. Jerry would take the white flag in 1st with Scott Harper 2nd, and Wayne Rogers 3rd all on the same lap. Jerry lost control and spun in the middle of turn three (3) and Scott Harper was able to get around Jerry without collecting him to cross the line for the Win of the Main and also collect the Bonus Point for the Win. Wayne Rogers dodged Jerry also but spun into the grass right before the start finish line and dropped a belt, which allowed Jerry who was able to collect control of his car after his spin to finish 2nd. Wayne would finish 3rd, with Woody Trimble coming home 4th. A wild last lap to say the least!
Fast Lap of the Main was Scott Harper in 6.127 seconds.
