Despite taking an early lead, Courtney was overtaken by Chase Stockon on the second circuit. Stockon held the lead until lap 21 when Jadon Rogers flipped bringing out a caution. Courtney was able to slide by Stockon to lead the rest of the way, and even put considerable distance on the field, on his way to the checkered flag. Kevin Thomas Jr. followed with Shane Cottle rounding out the podium.
