Out of the gate, Summer Sky took an early lead, followed closely by Blazing Fireball in second and Oddball in third. The racers came upon a split, where most of the racers, including the top three, took the bottom line. Taking a good line through the split, Blazing Fireball managed to pass Summer Sky by the time the lanes merged. As the racers entered a small set of slalom curves, Silver Bolt managed to overtake Oddball for third. The racers entered a wide turn, where Silver Bolt was able to pass both Summer Sky and Blazing Fireball to take first. The racers entered another set of gradual curves, where Oddball dropped multiple spots, taking him out of the top five.
The racers hit a high enbankment, where Blazing Fireball dropped two spots offscreen to Summer Sky and Rastafarian. As the racers entered another set of slalom curves, Blazing Fireball managed to overtake Summer Sky on a turn, who proceeded to drop into fifth. Through another turn, Blazing Fireball pulled off a second pass on Rastafarian, who had been running in second, while Summer Sky climbed back into fourth.
The racers dove through a hairpin turn, where the first four kept their positions. offscreen, Summer Sky dropped into sixth. Challenging Rastafarian was Big Pearl, who had been hounding him in fourth for a while. Big Pearl took advantage of a bump off the wall that had happened to Rastafarian, putting on a burst of speed to pass him and get into third. As the racers wove through some gradual turns, Silver Bolt had his undoing. After having been in first for much of the race, his speed built up so much that he wasn't able to make a turn, and dove right over a low wall, earning him a DNF. This gave the lead to Blazing Fireball.
As the racers went through a set of helices, Blazing Fireball was passed by Rastafarian and Big Pearl, who took first and second respectively. As the the racers went through another set of slaloms, Big Pearl snatched first from Rastafarian, before losing it moments later. The racers entered a teardrop, where the top three kept their positions, and Summer Sky crept back into fifth, chasing down Slimer for fourth. As the racers entered a split, the top three took the far slower high line, while Slimer and Summer Sky took the low line, bringing them into the lead. Summer Sky held first through the split, lost it momentarily to Slimer as they exited, but quickly passed back into fourth. The top two held a large lead over third and fourth, who happened to be Cobra and Comet. Through a set of gradual turns, Comet dropped into fifth, while Cobra passed up Slimer to take second.
Down the final stretch, Summer Sky held the lead, to come across in first place, as she had been at the very beginning of the race. Cobra came in second, having greatly benefitted from taking the low line at the split. In third was Slimer, shortly before Reflektor, who had played it safe during most of the race. Next came a close train of racers. Oddball, The Flash, and Comet took fifth, sixth, and seventh, all within 21 milliseconds of eachother. in eighth came Black Knight, and Olympia in ninth. Big Pearl rounded out the top ten, having dropped all the way from second because she had chosen the wrong line. This race had five DNFs, with Blue Smoke, Quicksilver, Rastafarian, Silver Bolt, and Starman failing to finish the race.
