Once in front, Moyer’s only serious challenge came from Dan Mohr, who three-wheeled his racecar around the high side the entire race.“It was a long race and I was glad when it was over,” admitted Moyer. “I couldn’t have been any happier.” Mohr had to settle for second, six car lengths off the pace, with Carter VanDenBerg a distant third. Tony Olson started deep in the field and drove to a fourth place finish while Jenae Gustin completed the top five.“I stayed in the middle following a restart around lap 15. We had another restart at midway and I could hear Mohr coming so I moved up higher on the track,” Moyer said. “We were in lapped traffic with about 15 to go and picked our way through as well as we could.” Feature results – 1. Austin Moyer; 2. Dan Mohr; 3. Carter VanDenBerg; 4. Tony Olson; 5. Jenae Gustin; 6. Bryce Garnhart; 7. Jake Waterman; 8. Brett Lowry; 9. Greg Wichman; 10. Jacob Ellithorpe; 11. Dustin Crear; 12.
