Sharp, a former two-time series champion, started 17th and steadily moved through the field to take the lead on lap 47 and held off a determined challenge from Danny Rhodes over the final 20 laps. A late caution set up a green, white, checkered finish with Sharp holding off Rhodes followed by Bruce Quale in third. 2009 series champion John Dillon finished fourth with Dave Garber edging Craig Bell at the line for fifth.
