Baggett made his move into third and with under ten minutes to go made the pass for second place. He then set his sights at the front and would attempt a pass for the lead with just a few laps to go, but to no avail.

Starting with his qualifying heat, Baggett led the pack into the first turn to secure the holeshot. He rapidly pulled away, hitting his lines every lap and showing confidence on the technical track. He never gave up control of the lead until he took the checkered flag for a wire to wire victory. He brought that speed into the main event, rounding the first turn in third place.

After catching his breath, Blake would get up with only minor bruises and ride back to the pits on his own power ending his night.
