What won the race: Second-starting Chuck Mitchell of Jacksonville, Ill., slid past fellow front-row starter Jake Little coming off turn four on the opening lap and never relinquished the lead en route to a 25-lap Midwest Big 10 Series victory. Mitchell earned $1,200.
Key notes: Brent McKinnon spun on the initial start, collecting Jackie Campbell and Jeffrey Reed Jr. ... Frankie Martin slowed and retired after four laps. ... Second-running Jake Little broke on the frontstretch with five laps complete; Campbell spun in turn two on the ensuing restart. ... Brian Diveley pressured the cushion-riding Mitchell by pulling alongside in traffic during the race's middle-to-late stages, but never made a pass stick. On lap 18, Diveley tangled with Reed while attempting to lap the slower car, forcing Reed to stop and draw the final yellow. ... The tour completed just its third event of 2015 after four rainouts. ... The series returned to action for the first time since June 13, when David Crawley Jr. won at Macon. Crawley scratched from Saturday's action with valve train issues.
