Time trials placed Hodnett third for the start. He followed front row starters Eric Stambaugh and polesitter Dale Blaney for the first three laps before a caution flag flew for Jason Johnson and Josh Wells on turn four. He got around Blaney for second on turns three and four of the restart, and then, after two more cautions, pulled the slider in turns three and four to grab the lead from Stambaugh on lap eight.
