Joey Logano secured the win after starting in 10th place, marking a notable performance for him as he maintained a consistent race position, resulting in an average running position that set him apart from the rest. Brad Keselowski, who began from the 19th position, climbed the ranks to finish second. His maneuvering through the field reflects a strong net gain rating. Kyle Busch, who started in 3rd and finished in the same position, demonstrated steady speed throughout the 267 laps.

Kurt Busch started from pole position but fell to 28th before recovering to finish in 5th place. This wild fluctuation suggests he might have encountered mid-race difficulties, possibly indicated by his substantial drop and recovery. Kevin Harvick, who began at the front, fell to 4th by race end, showing a less favorable GR-LR performance. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. showed solid consistency, moving from 8th to 6th, while Aric Almirola gained positions throughout the race, starting at 25th and finishing in 7th.

Matt DiBenedetto and Ryan Newman struggled, falling seven and 23 positions, respectively, from their start. This drop points to potential issues during the race while Erik Jones and Clint Bowyer retained their early positions. Joey Gase encountered an engine failure, finishing last. The bonanza of position changes throughout the race highlights the variability and endurance demanded from the drivers and their machines.
