Kyle Busch won the race with a Margin of Victory: 0.986 Seconds over Johnny Sauter. Kyle Busch said “It was fun, we had a really fast Cessna Tundra tonight. It was a challenge there in the middle part of the race. It was confusing for a while there, but we got through it. There near the end of that stage, we shot through the middle there. I thought the middle was going to close up and I was going to have to push Sauter, but Crafton left me a lane and I was able to blow through there.”
