Nicoletti powerfully launched off the line at the start of the Lites main event but was pinched off in the first corner due to his outside start position. When they came inside the stadium he had fallen to the tail end of the pack and was sitting in 17th. After a rough start, Nicoletti began to pick up his lap times and began making passes. He quickly moved to 15th and then a lap later moved up to 14th. He was handed 13th after Canard crashed and remained there to the finish.
