The order at lap ten was Wille, Fuqua, Sheets, Martin and Chad Lyle. Fuqua began to inch closer as Wille encountered lapped traffic by circuit 15 with Sheets, Martin, and Lyle still inside the top five.

Terry Phillips moved up in the field by lap 18, going from from his 14th starting spot into seventh. At lap 20, things really began to tighten up as the leaders encountered heavy lapped traffic. Caution flew on lap 21 to bunch the field as Wille continued to be under pressure from Fuqua, Martin and Sheets. By lap 24, Phillips moved to fourth.

Fuqua got too high on lap 30 as Martin and Phillips got around to move to second and third. Phillips moved to the high side to try to figure a line around Marin and took second on lap 35 from Martin. With ten laps remaining, Phillips caught Wille in lapped traffic and took command by lap 41 with Wille on the high side behind heavy lapped traffic. As the pair weaved their way though Wille stayed close to the leader as Martin, Fuqua, Sheets and Karrick tried to close in. Caution flew for a single-car spin at lap 43 as Phillips led Wille, Martin, Fuqua and Sheets back to green. Inside of five to go, Phillips had the lead, but caution flew again for debris throughout the speedway. On the restart Terry Schultz was too high and spun in turn one to draw another caution. Another caution flew with a three-car incident in turn three and four. On the final restart, Phillips pulled away to claim his second CMS BBQ Bowl victory of his career. Behind Phillips at the finish were Martin, who finished the last series of laps with a left-front flat tire to hold on for the runner-up position. Wille finished in third with Karrick and Fuqua rounding out the top five

Griggs finished second ahead of Miller, Brian Ziegler, David Raffurty and Mike Kennedy inside the top six.

Richards crossed the line second with Kyle Henning, Andy Bryant, Daniel Harris and Jessie Mulich to round out the top six.
