The second-starting Bagley grabbed the lead over polesitter Rob Litton of Alexandria, La., on the start of the 35-lap race and ran mostly unchallenged throughout the duration of the caution-free race.
While Bagley pulled away, a driver on the move was 12th-starting Billy Moyer Jr. of Batesville, Ark., who advanced into the top five by the race's midway point. He raced his way into the second spot later in the race, but was unable to catch the leader as Bagley went on to claim the win.
Moyer was solid in the runner-up spot at the finish while a tight battle for third raged behind him. Kyle Cummings of Minden, La., topped Chris Wall of Springfield, La., and Litton for the position.
