Green flag, Schlenk gets the jump. He noses ahead on the outside into turn one.
Lap 6, Schlenk has caught the tail of the field. He looks to the outside of Zobrist and makes light contact with the lap car.
Lap 9, Tyler Carpenter is all over the bumper of the leader. He works alongside. They run even in turn two. Carpenter takes the lead as they head into turn three.
Lap 14, Patrik Daniel tags the wall off turn two. Babb comes along with nowhere to go but into the back of him. Heavy damage on both cars and the caution is out.
Green, Carpenter leads.
Lap 23, Unzicker is all over Carpenter for the lead. Nose to tail, they bounce through the ruts in turn one.
Brandon Sheppard and Jonathan Davenport are slicing through the field.
11 to go, Unzicker slides Carpenter for the lead. They crowd each other through the corner. Bouncing off the doors.
Carpenter slides him back. Unzicker slides him again.
Unzicker bicycles into turn three. Carpenter bicycles as well.
As they head back into turn one, Unzicker smacks a rut hard. He barrel rolls and lands on his lid as Carpenter drives by on the bottom. The red flag is out. Unzicker climbs from the car alright.
Only 9 cars remain as they are set for the restart.
Green, Carpenter leads.
7 to go, Sheppard has a run to the inside. Carpenter blocks the run. Tanner English pounces and takes over 2nd.
5 to go, English is up in smoke he continues to run. Smoke surrounds the race track, no caution.
At the front, through the smoke, Sheppard is running down the leader.
2 to go, Sheppard started 15th and he’s now all over the neck of Carpetner for the lead.
1 to go, Sheppard floors it through turns 1-2. He’s on the fuel cell of Carpenter heading into turn three. Sheppard cuts to the bottom off turn four for the final time.
They run side by side to the line. By inches, it’s Carpenter.
