A caution came out on lap 16 and the field bunched up. Cook was strong on the restart and he kept Weeks back as the cars went to the half-way mark of the race. The top group played out with Cook, Weeks, Ferguson and Pearson in the top four.

There were four flat tires in five laps and the field was closely bunched. On the restart Cook again pulled past Weeks and Ferguson. As the laps wound down, Weeks was within passing distance of Cook, but he didn't make it. Cook led all 50 laps for the win.

The Brasstown, North Carolina racer drove his D&R Motorsports No. 53 MasterSbilt House Car with K&N Products. “Our K&N filters protect our engines in this type of dirt racing,” said Cook. “We count on great filtration and additional horsepower for our engines with K&N.”

In Victory Lane, Cook received a round of applause from his hometown track crowd. “I was a little worried with all the flats that were happening out there,” he said. “I just kept my focus on the track and it paid off.”
