Cunningham wins Kentucky Lights race.

Andrew Prendeville rounded out the top five for TMR/Xtreme Coil Drilling, having hauled himself up from row seven at the start.

"It was a short schedule, and we didn't have all the time we needed, but we started 13th and finished fifth," he reported, "The team did a really good job in the short time that we had, especially since we are a one-car team, and a lot of the other two-car teams had cars they could have pulled data off. The track wasn't ideal, and we've just been struggling with everything this weekend. The track was still pretty dusty, but we still put on a pretty good show for the fans."

Hinchcliffe was classified seventh, behind Daniel Herrington, while returnee Mike Potekhen, Martin Plowman and Mario Romancini completed the top ten. Plowman's Panther Racing team-mate Pippa Mann took the start despite her visit to hospital on Friday and completed 65 of the 67 laps in 15th position.

Hildebrand, meanwhile, was classified in 17th spot after retiring on the opening lap with a mechanical problem on his ARPRO AFS/AGR machine. The American was one of just three retirements, all coming on lap one after Charlie Kimball and Gustavo Yacaman were both sidelined by contact.
