Neuhalfen had to hold off the likes of Alex Bergeron and Kevin Dedmon en route to earning his first win of the 3D Team VLR Limited Late Model Series. This was also Neuhalfen’s first Team VLR win of his career. A final lap effort by Kevin Dedmon had everyone on the edge of their seat as it appeared to the broadcast crew that Dedmon and pulled off the upset after Neuhalfen had led the entire race.
