Anderson started on the pole and was in complete control from start to finish except for a few laps he was in lapped traffic mid-way through the race.

"It helped starting in the front," said Anderson after earning $3,000 for the 40-lap shootout. "I had a few guys there that told me how much lead that I had. I just tried to pass them as fast as I could and try to put lapped cars in between me and (driver D.J. Myers). I was trying to get my guys to tell me how many lapped cars there were between us to help me out there."
