The final caution of the race flew on lap 22 for a three-car tangle in turn three between Tommy Carlton, Hartrum, and Yeager. The restart saw Feistritzer go to the runner-up slot, while Jerry Rice moved in on Preston for fifth. Rice took fifth on lap 24, but there would be no more challenges for Johnson as he rolled to victory lane. Feistritzer, Bernhardt, Coffman, and Rice completed the top five.
Linville jumped to the race lead in the Good Neighbor Pharmacy Super Late Model feature, with Victor Lee, Wayne Chinn, Tyrel Todd, and David Webb in pursuit. Webb took fourth from Todd on lap 3 and moved around Chinn one trip later to take third, while Dustin Neat made his way past Todd for fifth on lap 5. With Linville and Lee pulling away a bit from the field, Neat began to reel in Chinn and grab the fourth slot on lap 7. As the field took the halfway signal, lapping of slower traffic began and Linville put some distance between himself and the second-place running Lee, while Keltner challenged Chinn for fifth.
The only caution of the race waved on lap 18 when Keltner spun his machine while battling with Chinn for the fifth spot. With action resuming, Linville held on to first, while Webb put some heat on Lee for the runner-up slot. Brandon Fouts made his way into the top five after the caution, moving past Chinn on lap 21, while Lee had won the battle with Webb for second. Linville moved on to take the checkered flag, Lee placed second, followed by Webb, Neat, and Fouts.
The 20-lap Hardee's Modified feature saw Jason Wheatley take the lead at start of the race, with Benji Lee taking second after a lap 4 caution. As the race wore on, Wheatley and Lee distanced themselves from the field, with J. T. Ayers and Kelly Warren battling for third and Kevin Nesselhauf and Josh Lucas going at it for fifth. Lucas took fifth on lap 6, and after a side-by-side battle with Warren, slid into fourth on lap 9. Lee turned up the wick on Wheatley for the lead on lap 12 and did take the lead exiting turn four with five to go, only to have the pass negated when Randy Turpin spun in turn two before the lap was completed. Wheatley returned to the point on the restart, with Elliott Despain taking fifth from Warren. The top five remained unchanged over the final five circuits, with Wheatley scoring the win and Lee finishing second. Lucas nipped Ayers for third in a photo-finish while Despain rounded out the top five.
The SkyTower Power Race Engines Sportsman division saw only one leader, with Bartley Grant jumping in front at the start and holding the point to earn the $500 payday and his fifth feature victory of the season at Ponderosa. Gerald Haynes Jr. won an early battle with Logan Whitis to eventually come home in the runner-up position. Whitis claimed third in the race, Troy Scott ran fourth from start to finish and Scott Hensley completed the top five.
