Martin Truex Jr. clinched the victory from his eighth starting position, showcasing a consistent performance. His average running position (ARP) was not available, but finishing first after starting eighth highlights a net gain rating worth noting. Truex's clean run allowed him to avoid any damaged vehicle policy implications. The caution at lap 316 involving the No. 19 car did not affect his final result.

Ryan Newman experienced a notable rise, starting 19th and ending fifth. Such improvement suggests a strong execution of strategy and car handling. Newman's performance ensured he stayed clear of DVP incidents even with multiple cautions during the race, ensuring a wild and efficient run strategy to move up fourteen places while maintaining an ARP that reflected his steady climb.

On the other hand, Joey Logano demonstrated resilience by starting 28th and finishing 11th, showing significant positional gains. However, the bonanza of incidents, especially the caution involving the No. 3, No. 88, and No. 21 at lap 113, likely contributed to the shuffling in his position distribution. Overall, this race's mixed results highlight the dynamic changes that can occur within the 400 laps, particularly due to strategic responses to late-race cautions.
