Hodnett was one of many drivers opting to bolt on the Hoosier brand during the event and was rewarded with a first place finish ahead of fellow Hoosier-shod drivers Shane Stewart, Fred Rahmer, Danny Lasoski and Danny Smith. The race was much like the past four seasons on dirt tracks across the globe with Hoosier tires being the choice of 22 of the 24 feature starters. In the end, the first 13 drivers to cross the finish line in the night's feature race rode on Hoosiers. Volusia Speedway, located 15 miles from Daytona International Speedway, also hosted a U.M.P. Modified race which was won by Ron Barker. Barker was followed by Brent Glastetter, Scott Orr, Klint Pursley and Kevin Sexton. The U.M.P. Modified Series uses a Hoosier-only tire-rule in both its Super Late Model and its Open Wheel Modified classes to help keep costs down for its competitors. 

In the 410 Sprint feature race, Greg Hodnett took the win using a pair of Hoosier RD12's on his left and right rear positions. Runner-up Shane Stewart opted to run a Hoosier RD12/D12 (left rear/right rear) combination, while third place finisher Fred Rahmer used the same set-up as the race winner. Danny Lasoski, who finished fourth, used a pair of Hoosier D10's--Hoosiers softest compound available. 

Rounding out the top-13 finishers on Hoosiers were Danny Smith in fifth, Craig Dollansky, Terry McCarl, Lance Dewease, Zack Chappell, Jeremy Campbell, Mark Smith, Joey Saldana and Kevin Frey in 6th through 13th, respectively.

Hoosier's Oval Track Dirt Product Manager Neil Cowman attended the race which was the first of four nights of 410 Sprint racing at the famous 1/2-mile track.
