Using the outside line in turns three and four, Lou passed Lichty for the lead! Several cautions followed, with Liquid Lou still showing the way and Chris Perley now in second. With Chris pressing through the final exciting laps, Lou ran some of his fastest laps of the day and took the victory!

Liquid Lou went to victory lane and thanked his crew for their hard work. “The car was awesome! I can’t believe how good it was on the outside”, Lou said. “I really want to thank the Miller crew, and Scottie, and everybody. They really worked their ass off on this car. And I appreciate them letting me run the car.”
