Dietrich and Glatfelter walked back to the pits from the crash and were penalized by All-Star officials for a rule violation. Both cars were parked in the infield until the conclusion of the feature.
The field lined up once again for a complete restart and the saying “the third times a charm” rang true. The start was clean with Gee to the lead and both Dale Blaney and Jeff Halligan getting around Campbell.
As Gee was pulling away and Ryan Smith was starting to work on Campbell for fourth the caution flag flew yet again. Brian Montieth slowed as he had a flat right rear lap 2. Montieth utilized the two-minute work time and rejoined the field.

Halligan raced his way back up to fifth after falling back to seventh earlier in the race.
Gee continued to pull away but tagged the wall coming out of turn 4 lap 21 losing a second of his advantage over Blaney. Despite the mishap Gee had created enough distance between Blaney to maintain his lead as he approached lapped traffic to cross the finish line first for his first career All-Star victory.

Dale Blaney, Jeff Halligan and Ryan Smith were the heat race winners. Brandon Rahmer won the B-main.
