It was the third career victory for Myers, of Walnut Cove, N.C.

The race was extended to 153 laps because of the late caution. Brunnhoelzl, of West Babylon, N.Y., was second and Kyle Ebersole of Hummelstown, Pa. was third.

Ted Christopher of Plainville was fourth.

Late in the race, Myers looked like he would be involved in a feisty battle for second place Brunnhoelzl. That was before the final caution of the race flew when then leader Tim Brown slowed on the frontstretch. Brown, who won the pole for the event and led 96 laps, at times held as much as a two-second lead on the field.

Myers restarted in second in the decisive final restart but grabbed the lead from Brunnhoelzl.
