Belanger turned his fastest lap of group qualifying at 17.377 securing teh 2nd position in overall qualifying and the pole for 1 of 2 heats. Belanger would lead flag to flag in his heat and bring home the winner which resulted in the outside pole for the feature event. Early on in the 25 lap Main event A.J. would slide back to 4th before being collected in caution relegating him to the back of the pack. A.J. quickly worked his way back up to the 3rd position before a late race caution. Before going back to green leader Tony Gray would retire with mechanical issues moving A.J. up to second. The field returned to green flag action on lap 21 as A.J. would restart behind the new leader Eddie Daniels. A.J.
