It was the first career K&N Pro Series East victory for Gifford, from Winchester, Tenn.

Brandon Gdovic was second and Cole Custer third.

Gifford took the lead for good from Custer on lap 77.

Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, Mass. was fourth.

Gray Gaulding broke Chase Elliott’s record for youngest pole winner in series history at 15 years, 2 months and 15 days. Gaulding led the first 58 laps before contact with Corey LaJoie in a battle for the lead took both drivers out of contention.
