Cutters outsprinted Delta Tau Delta and Sigma Phi Epsilon to capture their 15th Little 500 championship. Earlier in the day, the photo finish was not guaranteed. At lap 70, Sigma Phi Epsilon broke away, amassing more than a 20-second lead on the field. Cutters steadily reeled in Sigma Phi Epsilon, eventually retaking the lead on lap 148 and pedaling to victory. Delta Tau Delta and Chi Alpha overcame a late crash to finish second and fourth. After being a lap down at one point, Phi Kappa Psi regained their lap and finished the race among leaders for the final lap sprint. Phi Kappa Psi finished fifth.
