Weiss started on the pole and did lead every lap, but he had a few challenges such as restarts as David Crabtree and Shanon Buckingham would stay close for a few laps and then he would be challenged by working his way through the lapped traffic, but he used patience and took his time as he had the dominate car and knew that he could build his lead back up when got clear of the slower cars. Weiss took home $7,500 for the win.
 
Finishing in the second spot was least year’s race winner Shannon Buckingham who started eighth as he and third place finisher Crabtree put on show for the fans as they battled each other hard for the latter half of the race.  Southern All Star point’s leader David Breazeale came home in the fourth spot and ow has 64 point lead going into the final race of the season at Talladega.  Fifth place went to Eric Wells who was making his first start of the year with the series as he moved up from his seventh starting position.
