Cory Flamm of Warrensburg and Bobby Russell of Smithville took top passing points honors for the Pure Stocks to start the 20-lap main event from row one.

Yellow flew over the field at lap nine with Russell leading Flamm and Bradley McDowell. Cameron Kelly moved to fourth by lap 12 with McDowell taking second. Yellow again flew at lap 13 when it was determined by race officials to end the race under a green, white, and checkered flag finish. After additional troubles on the ensuing restart and high attrition, the race was ended under a white and checkered status. Several changes took place as drivers spun from contention in the late stages while Russell went on to take his seventh career CMS checkers.
