After a week off the CKF Construction Approval Series started back up for the first of four races. Alex Orians and Jim McIntyre Jr would lead the field of 16 to the green flag after the handicapping lined up the top 10. On the start Orians took the lead with Justin Fuller close in tow. Fuller would take the lead and a few laps later Fuller would make a driving error and end his night after hard contact with the turn four wall. On the restart TJ Graves would take the lead with Al Smith Jr and Jake Watson battling for second. Smith Jr would slip and bring out the second caution. The race for the lead would hot and heavy was Graves and Watson would swap the lead multiple times before the next caution would come out on lap 80. The field would come down and take tires. Graves would resume the race as the leader with AJ Hamel in second. A rash of yellows would slow the race down and in the end it would be TJ Graves who would win followed by Hamel and Scott Naslund rounding out the top three.
Next week the series stays in Florida for the running of the Lokotoco Designs 100 at the USA Speedway. Sunday the 360 Sprint Series is also in Florida as they take on the Volusia Speedway!
