Moyer grabbed the lead on the opening lap and wouldn’t relinquish the top spot over the course of the main event withstanding a late run by Solon Springs, Wis., driver Brady Smith that saw Smith make multiple attempts at Moyer Jr. with less than 15 laps remaining. Smith would settle for the runner-up spot and 3-time Summer Nationals Champion Shannon Babb finished third. Pole sitter Jason McBride of Carbondale, Ill., finished fourth and Chatham, Ill., driver Brian Shirley rounded out the top five.
