McIntyre, who won a weekly show at the track just six days earlier, was happy with his career-best USAC finish of second. "[Thomas and Boespflug] were running well on the bottom so I decided to go to the top and I finally got it cleaned off up there," McIntyre stated. "Actually I could run the top a lot harder than I thought I could before the race. I kept trying, but I couldn't quite get him cleared. I love this track and racing for the lead is so much fun. I wish I would have won, but finishing second to him is all right too, he's a great friend of mine."
Darland, like McIntyre, primarily ran around the top to hold off hard-charging Chris Bell for third while Chris Windom rounded out the top five. "I knew it was gonna slick off all the way up to the fence," said Darland, second all-time in sprint car feature wins at the track. "I was just trying to pick off as many spots as I could there early and see what happened. Steve and Carla Phillips always give me a great car and it was that way throughout."
Boespflug ended up finishing sixth, followed in the top-10 by Bryan Clauson, who earned the Hard Charger Award after starting outside the 10th row. Hunter Schuerenberg was eighth with Scotty Weir taking ninth and Brady Short 10th. Kokomo's Shane Cottle was 16th and Coons ended up 19th. With 46 cars on hand and the frenetic pace of all the races, surprisingly there were but two red flags. West Coast driver Ryan Bernal got into the turn one fence early in the feature and Gary Taylor and Tyler Hewitt both flipped during the first heat race. Hewitt was transported to the hospital with broken ribs and a broken shoulder.
