As the laps wound down Cook seemed to be heading to a comfortable victory only to have a caution comne out with seven laps remaining regrouping the field. Cook then had to hold of a late charge from Vic Hill to close out the race. Saturday Night marked the first time this season at Smoky Mountain Speedway Vic Hill did not win an A-feature in which he participated in.
