Chris Moore led the final two laps back to the checkers and then led the top five cars to the post race inspection and the scales. A moment later Dillard who had finished the contest in the runner-up position appeared in the www.rockauto.com USCS victory lane to accept the trophy and $1000 first place money.

Rusty Duncan from Tuscaloosa, Alabama finished in the runner-up spot followed by young gun J.C. Waller from Arlington, Tennessee in the K&N Filters Podium awarding third place.
