Longtime Enduro ace Mike Ganoe drew the pole for the start and jumped out to a huge lead in the early going. His effort was derailed, though, by a tangle on the backstretch on lap 19.

While Ganoe struggled to right his machine, Larry Drommerhausen assumed the top spot and showed the way through lap 34.

Danny Harrell took the lead on lap 35. Five laps later, however, he gave way to Boggess, who paced the field to the checkered flag.

The win was worth $1,000 to Boggess, while Drommerhausen collected $500 for his second-place outing, and Shawn Gervais picked up $300 for third.
