Kroll would get to Reinhardt’s rear bumper but could never complete pass. Kroll would settle for second as Reinhardt crossed the checkers first. Reinhardt who blew up his engine the week before had to borrow an engine from his brother Gary just to go racing this weekend. Brett Koehler third, Shawn Havel fourth and points leader Greg Gretz fifth.
