Mechanicsburg, PA., June 22, 2014

Tom Wyckoff started on the pole and led with Chad Trout in close pursuit. The race came to a halt on lap two for a crash involving Chad Criswell and Doug Dobson. There was a brief fire on the Dobson car but neither driver sustained any injuries.
Wyckoff continued to lead with Rick Barr in second and Trout was third. Scott Geesey, the ninth-place starter, was in fourth. Trout advanced to second with Geesey moving into third. Chad Trout and Scott Geesey had a tight battle for second with Geesey gaining the position in the 10th circuit.
