Wallace earned $10,100 for winning his 24th career UDTRA victory and jumped from sixth to fourth in the UDTRA Pro DirtCar Series point standings after 23 events. Bloomquist challenged Wallace early and often in the first half of the race, but lost the leader after a late race caution with seven laps to go, and had to settle for second, with Bob Pierce finishing third. York's Rick Eckert finished 10th and now holds a 132 point lead over Steve Francis. Francis was involved in an opening lap accident which took him out of contention. Francis was credited with a 19th-place finish.
