Russ Hayes Accent Inns rider Devon Moonie, broke away on lap 4 and put the hammer down, chased by Ray Nyuli, Josh Ogivie, Wayne Little, Sophie Ogilvie, Dana Manhard, and Roy Langdon. Pushing the speed, Devon managed to stay clear, dwindling the chase group down to three; Josh, Dana, Wayne, followed by Ray, 20 seconds behind.
