Aubertin and second place runner Steve Arrand in Bill Brekelmens #07 quickly built up a huge lead over the war that was going on behind them. It was a battle for all positions that we hadn’t seen this intense this year. By lap 10, the “Dynamic Duo” at the front had built up to a 20 car length lead over the 3rd place runner, Derek McCullough in the #00. At the halfway point, Aubertin and Arrand were still in front but McCullough, Kyle Mezenberg #810 and Points Leader Barry Watson #45 were closing in as they escaped from the battle of the pack. Lap 18 had McCullough and Watson getting by Arrand. Watson #45 gets by the #00 of McCullough and sets sail for Aubertin. With 8 laps to go, Watson and McCullough both get by the leader Aubertin who now drops to 3rd position. At this point the Truck of Jacob Campbell #44 is flying and closes in on the leaders. McCullough #00 makes strong moves to get around Watson’s #45 and on lap 27 takes over the lead. Caution comes out on lap #28 with contact between the Trucks of Jacob Campbell #44, Lonny Thompson #4 and the #28 of Ryan Dyson in Turn 4. Thompson was through for the night. On the restart, McCullough held onto the lead and held off Watson to capture his second Feature Win of the 2019 Season. Barry Watson #45 grabbed 2nd place. Cooper Aubertin #28 runs a great race to capture 3rd place.
