Over the final six laps, it was all Lathroum as he went to the line by .881 seconds over Satterlee and Miller while Hubbard and Kenny Pettyjohn completed the top five. Spence was sixth with Stuhler, Marvin Winters, Keith Jackson and Jason Covert next. Lathroum, Dylan Yoder and Stuhler were heat winners with Roy Deese Jr. taking the consy win.
“The restarts were killing us but after a few laps, I’d get a little rhythm and start getting away,” Lathroum said. “I just didn’t want to see all those restarts. I’d like to see it go green to checkered.”
After winning the K&N Dash, D.J. Troutman led the opening lap of the RUSH event but he and Andrew Wylie battled for the same space and Troutman spun in the second turn after a lap scored.
Wylie took over for the restart with seventh starting Pegher Jr. into second by lap two and made his successful bid for the lead the next lap.
Pegher was cruising and pulling away as Andrew Satterlee moved into second on lap six with the caution coming out on lap 11 just as Pegher arrived at the back of the field and 2.5 seconds ahead.
Following the restart, Pegher again paced himself at the helm while Glenn Elliott moved into third on lap 13 and was trying to run Satterlee down.
Pegher arrived at the rear of the field again on the 21st lap with more than a two second lead and continued the pace past several of the rear cars. He went to the checkered flag with two lapped cars and 1.696 seconds separating him from Satterlee.
“We kept watching the track and the super lates,” Pegher said. “The last time we were here we were a little bit loose all night long so we spent some extra time on the scales this week to make sure it was prefect.”
Elliott held to third with Ryan Montgomery and Joe Martin completing the top five.
