Worley took the lead and traded it twice with Kinser, the final time on lap 28. Kinser finished second with Mike Ward third. Jerrod Hull was fourth with Lowe Cannell fifth.

Craig Carey of Springfield, Ill., scored his first MARA midget victory of the year, beating another Springfield resident -- Chad Branson -- to the line. Branson led all 25 laps of the final MARA feature event on the year.
