Moore was crowded off the track on the restart by another competitor after the halfway break. Lewis seized the opportunity to drive into second and challenge for the lead.

Lewis suffered a broken rear axle, however, but his BMR team got him back into the race quickly. He ran out of time to rebound and eventually finished ninth. Moore overcame a pit stop, and a pass-through penalty for a restart violation, to finish fourth.
