Chasing Brian Shirley for 85 laps, Gordy Gundaker finally saw hope when the leader showed signs of trouble. The margin closed and a battle for the lead ensued. Slowing on the track due to a broken axle, Shirley was passed by Gundaker on lap 94. He held the position for the last seven laps to score his first career Hell Tour victory. Gundaker earned $5,000 with the feature win, beating Ryan Unzicker by 1.398 seconds on July 6, 2018.
