Defending track champion Melvin Pierson was fourth with Brian Chaffee rounding out the top five.
The C.A. Miller Limited Late Models put on a show going caution free. Nicholas Longley led the initial six laps before George Osgood slipped by on the inside to take the lead and run to the non-stop victory unchallenged. Longley held on to take the second position. A last lap pass netted Kelly Miller Sr third with Michael Santaw settling for fourth with Tyler Tremblay fifth.
