He went on to finish fourth, sending him to a b-main where he would claim the win to lock into the 21st starting spot for the 100 lap feature. After nearly a two hour rain delay the main event finally got under, and Benedum advanced a few spot early before retiring on lap 72 to a seventeenth place finish in the final rundown.
