On the restart, Yorke continued his climb to the front, battling for eighth on lap 17 with Gehrig Halliday. Yorke got by Halliday to take the spot on lap 18. Yorke held down eighth till the next caution at lap 21 for an incident involving Morgan Robson and Kevin Pickford.
On the restart, Yorke went three-wide with Brandon McFerran and Samantha Shaw for sixth, that turning into a side-by-side with just McFerran on lap 21. McFerran would get by Yorke on lap 22.
