Shane hit the start line first, but Steve David grabbed the lead coming out of the first turn.  Shane stayed right on his hip, but at the Sea World turn, David pulled father ahead.  Villwock in lane three had fallen back a bit.

In lap two, Shane closed the gap.  Shane and David went side-by-side, but David pulled back ahead  at the end of lap two.  At the end of lap three, it stayed a two boat race.  Villwock stayed in third. 

At the start of the final lap, it was only a three boat lead for David, but he started to lengthen it out and won by a little less than a roostertail.
