With just six laps to go Darrah recaptured the lead, and held off Kaeding to take the win.
In all, there were five official lead changes among three different drivers in the wild A-main.
“It was typical me, my features usually play out like a roller coaster,” said Darrah. “I have good runs, then there’s one mistake where I fall back. It was kind of a good time for me to get back in a bad position. I was being timid and trying to save my tire when I was out in front, and when I got behind I just drove as hard as I could.”
Kaeding, a short track specialist, held on for the second-place finish.
“This Roth Enterprise H3 Cattle car has been running great all year, we came out to win races and hopefully we can keep doing that,” said Kaeding. “Tonight showed we’re definitely a top-five car and a contender every night. We had a lot of brake issues throughout the night, and I’m not going to put anything on the brakes, it was me driving the car.”
Third place exchanged hands several times throughout the night, but in the end it was Steve Kinser capturing the spot in the Bad Boy Buggies/J.D. Byrider Maxim.
“We were better. I went from tight to a little bit on the loose side,” said Kinser. “I’ve been trying some of the stuff I’ve always run the rest of my life, now I’m freeing this thing up and it feels better so we’ll see what happens.”
Daryn Pittman gave up points to second place in the championship standings, Donny Schatz, who finished fourth while Pittman was 11thafter starting 13th.
