and Aric Iosue brought the field to green for the 50-lap main event with Iosue leading the first circuit from the outside. Track prep had taken place prior to the feature and cars were able to run on virtually every square inch of the bullring. After diving to the low side of rookie Tyler Thompson on the initial start, Shullick was on a mission from the inside of the third row and quickly began to work the outside lane on fourth starting Brandon Bellinger, Connors, and Iosue. On lap 12 Gualda hopped the cushion in turn three and stopped to bring out a yellow, forcing him to the rear of the field. It was one of those perfect take-a-bow driving performances! It was the second fastest in group qualifying and he had won the second heat. Back underway Furr would become the new marked man as the always dangerous Justin Sanders was in second and chasing down the race leader as he was in search of his fourth Ocean Sprints win of the season.
Shullick was not done yet, as he immediately reeled in the Iosue No. After this the five-time track champion closed in Sanders and began to hound the rear of the Dale Miller Septic No. From lap 17 to 22 Sanders and Forsberg kept fans on the edge of their seats racing through heavy lapped traffic.
Preliminary events produced their share of excitement. The High-Five Pizza Hard Charger would be Justin Sanders who advanced seven positions in the feature event, and the Beer Optics Hard Luck Award would go to Mitchell Faccinto.
The third heat was very competitive with 3 lead changes and a wild flip in turn three. Furr would kick the night off by earning Ray Scheidts Electric Quick Time honors.
