Dripps got a great restart while Josh Gilman and Jimmy Gustin raced into second and third, respec­tively. Dripps went on to take his first win at Marshalltown while Gustin grabbed second from Gilman on the last lap.

Outside row one starter Frank Packer grabbed the early Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod lead. Packer continued to pave the away, holding off Dusty Masolini and Sam Wieben while Williams worked his way to second.

Following a lap eight restart, Packer and Williams battled for the lead and it was Williams taking the lead away on lap 10. Williams held on to take his first win at Marshalltown ahead of Wieben and Packer.

After taking the lead on lap 15, Donavon Smith drove to the Miller Lite IMCS Sunoco Stock Car victory.
