Hagan was quicker off the blocks and led this race from start to finish. Hagan took his car straight down the groove for his third win of the season. In the other lane, Wilkerson's run looked good for about 600 feet, then his car lost a cylinder or two and it started moving around on the track. This is Hagan's second straight win, after winning last month in Norwalk, Ohio.
