By lap 3 he was already back in second and had a race long chase to catch leader Charley Cavalier with 3 or so laps to go pushing Charley he made a mistake over the huge booter triple that allowed him to pass as he crashed.Joel was able to hit its marks and take home the win from there. Charlie Cavalier in second and Tony Newland in third rounded out the podium.
