With qualifying out of the way the drivers would come out on track for the respective mains. B-Main drivers were out on track first and it was a straight forward race with no position changes throughout the duration of the race. The checkered flag came out and Charles Abbott would take the win followed by Anthony Ospino and Rodney William rounded out the podium finishers.
A-Main drivers would close out the night with pole setter Michael Apuzzo leading the field into turn one on the green flag rolling start.
