And Dean Blakley never finished his 3rd lap dur to engine troubles, a possible broken rod.

Lap 5 had a change in the lead, with Bill Bass first in to the Start/Finish, but that's where his day would end, as the car would have to be pushed to his pits. Bill thought he may have broken an axel. Cameron Blackley came through next to finish his 4th lap. Dave Sams came through in 2nd, 25 min. after Bass, seams he ran out of gas around mile 28 and had to wait for his crew to bring some gas out to him.
