The Winged Sprint Car feature would roll out next with Scott Hull and Brian Lay bringing the field to green.Two complete restarts would be needed before Hull would jump to the lead.The lead would be short lived as Lay would motor by during the 2nd circuit.Chris Jones would work by Hull also when the caution would fly on lap 9 for a spinning Ryan Kirkendall.Lay would jump back out to the lead while 8th starting Chad Blonde wouldwork by Hull into 3rd.A Lap 16 yellow would wave for a spin by Chris Jones.Jones would keep the car running, but Aaron Huff would spin to avoid contact and stop.Lay would continue to lead over Blonde when yellow would fly on lap 19 for Bill Jacoby off the backstretch.The green would wave until lap 20 when Matt Merrill would sail off turn 4 and come to a stop.The race would go green the rest of the way with Brian Lay picking up the win over Blonde, Hull, Aaron Shaffer and Doug Zimmerman.Hull and Blonde would win the heats.
