With 5 laps to go, it was still Bren in command with Surdell and Provost locked in a duel for second behind him. The two Fearns were still running fourth and fifth. Bren went unchallenged to pick up a win in his return to Limited Late Model competition after sitting out the 2017 season. Surdell finished second with Provost, Ryan Fearn, and Alexandra Fearn rounding out the top-5.
