For awhile, the other 3 teams had a close battle for 2nd, then Team Quebec suffered a crash that had them losing quite a bit of time for repairs, leaving Team Cloverleaf Gearz and Can-Am to fight it out. But then Can-Am had a motor wire come loose, and later on the rear axle shifted, which meant time in the pits. Cloverleaf Gearz drove a steady race to come home 2nd, with Can-Am 3rd and Quebec in 4th.
