Qualifying first, French drove to the win in each of the heat races. Musser got the jump on French, who fell back to seventh in the opening circuit. The S1 driver fought his way forward to reach the second spot by lap nine. From there, he inched his way closer to Musser, coming up a half-second short with the former S4 Pro Tour champion taking his second victory of the year. Cody Jolly grabbed the third step on the podium with Nathan Adds and Austin Wilkins making up the top-five. French earned maximum points on Sunday with a sweep from qualifying to the main event. Leading all 16 laps, French won by 3.5 seconds over Wilkins with Adds in third.
