Carlos led the race for a couple of laps and he was tailed by his teammate Inguito from Luzon and Suzuki-VMan rider April King Mascardo from Davao. Masato Fernando, another Yamaha rider who hails from Bulacan, crashed in the first turn of the first lap but was able to remount and continue the race. The second pack of the race was comprised of Yamaha’s Ephraim Onahon from Bukidnon who was chased by Suzuki-VMan riders Eane Jaye Sobretodo from Luzon and Jaypee Obedencio from Davao. Suzuki-VMan’s Josh Tan was then tailed and overtaken by Fernando.

It seemed that Carlos was poised to take the win but eventually Inguito overtook him and grabbed his first Super Underbone win of the year. Inguito placed second in the first three rounds and finally landed himself on top of the podium in the Cebu GP of the Super Series which is sanctioned by the Unified Sports and Racing Association for Motorcycles, Inc. (USRA).
