Smith defeated South Australian Brad Gartner, Queenslander Ardie Jonic, Angus Hollis and Ricky Cornwall.
A re-start on lap eighteen eliminated Australian Champion Todd Atkins, Donald Young and Jamie Burton, setting up an eight lap run to the flag. Smith immediately opened a lead as Gartner and Jonic had to contend with a lapped car, and once clear fought side by side to the chequered flag.
For Smith, fresh from winning the Central Queensland Title at Rockhampton, after winning the Northern Territory Title earlier in the season, it would be his eleventh Feature victory of the season.
