HARD CHARGER: Michael Curtis (16th to 8th) BEAVER STRIPES PASSING MASTER: Charles Davis Jr. We survived that and were better after the caution. It looked like a race from the Thursday/Saturday Night Thunder era of the early 1990s with Kody using the Steve Butler line at the entry of turn one in an effort to get around the lapped car of Chris Windom, nearly clipping the grass with his left side tires. If I hadn't have had both hands on the wheel, I think I would've been in the same boat. Not only has he been special in a Silver Crown car at this racetrack, he's been great in everything even as little as he gets to go." On lap 87, with the laps winding down, Kody took every avenue he could to keep his hard-charging younger brother at bay. However, Tanner drifted up the racetrack, nearly collecting the outside SAFER barrier in the process. A lap 88 yellow for a turn three crash involving Jerry Coons, Jr. Swanson never allowed Cockrum to get close enough to challenge, finishing out an incredible run of success on the Indy Mile, winning by 2.7 seconds over Cockrum, Tyler Courtney, Cottle and a career-best finish for birthday boy Johnny Petrozelle.
"I was fortunate that a couple of the spots played out in my favor and I was able to get clear. My only move left was to try and stay there on the bottom and do some sort of pick and roll and just hope that the lapped car occupied the space because I had been had." Tanner was relentless in his approach, pulling alongside Kody on several occasions and appeared poised to make the winning pass with 10 laps remaining on the outside at the exit of turn two, but was shielded by a lapped car that shackled his momentum, allowing Kody to breakaway.

Pierce got back by momentarily, but it would be only four more laps before Tanner found a little bit of redemption, passing Pierce again, this time on the outside of turn two to take second. The win was the 21st of Swanson's Silver Crown career, moving him to within two of Jack Hewitt's record 23 victories.
