The third and final main event saw Blake starting mid-pack, forcing him to put in work to make his way through the field.

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 that late charge, he crossed the checkered flag in 2nd place.
