Justin Gann led 72 laps and claimed his first victory of the season at Martinsville Speedway. Gann recovered for a spin before the stage break, but assumed the lead on Lap 126 when leader Jeff Yenisch spun off the corner.
Polesitter Duane Hunt controlled the early stages of the race and won the first stage, but couldn’t get around Gann at any point in the final stage after Gann stayed out on older tires. Hunt was positioned for a strong finish at the end, but a black flag due to a jumped restart caused him to fade to 13th place.
Adam Matz, Thomas McBride, Ray Polking and Hunter Waters rounded out the Top 5.
