The series points leader led 65 laps on his way to victory, “This is awesome and we’ve been working so hard for this. Last week was a bummer having engine troubles and I told the guys before coming here, let’s go finish three spots better and I’ll be dang if we didn’t do it. Can’t thank everybody enough at HRE, Scott (Zipadelli, crew chief) and the guys, they work their tails off week in and week out.”

Team Toyota’s Derek Kraus graduated high school prior to the race and then came home with a fifth-place finish in the event to move him inside the Playoff cutline. “I feel like tonight we had a really good run, and it was a special night, for me it was graduation. I got my diploma from my principal back in Strafford, Wisconsin,” Kraus said. “I really can’t thank them guys enough. They let me chase my dreams of racing, and they let me miss as much school as I needed to, to chase my dreams. I just can’t thank them enough, and tonight was a really good night to have a good finish.”
 
Brennan Poole finished 12th, Christian Eckes 13th, Brandon Jones 14th, Raphael Lessard 16th and Stewart Friesen 27th.
