Chris Buescher was second in qualifying with a time of 17.276 (115.652 mph).

The two teenagers led the 34-car field to the start of the 200-lap race. 

Buescher immediately took the lead from King as the green flag waved. 

Buescher would lead two times for a total of 104 laps including the final 37 laps en route to capturing the win.

The race had just six cautions for a total of 39 laps.

In the end, Buescher took the win by 1.186 seconds over Will Kimmel who started 10th. 

It was Will Kimmel's career best finish in the ARCA Series and came at his home track. 

Will Kimmel was followed to the finish line by Tim George Jr. and Jared Marks in third and fourth, respectively. 

Frank Kimmel came from 15th to finish fifth, while Matt Di Benedetto finished sixth after starting 17th.
