As Spence lead, sixth-starting Roy Deese Jr. was on the move as he raced his way to 2nd by the 8th circuit. Spence and Deese would then out on a crowd pleasing duel over the remainder of the event with Spence prevailing at the finish for the $3000 win. “It’s an honor to win this race.” Spence stated in Winchester’s victory lane. “This win was a team effort and I wouldn’t be standing here without my family, the crew and all the sponsors.” CS Fitzgerald came home third, DJ Myers took fourth with Jeremy Miller rounding out the top-five.
