Harvick's net gain rating of 2.82 highlights his solid passing ability. Denny Hamlin finished second after starting 15th, maintaining an average running position of 8.38, with a net gain rating of 3.23, reflecting a strong race pace.

Martin Truex Jr., starting in 18th position, concluded in third, with an average running position of 13.97, indicating a track position juggling act but ending with a net gain rating of 1.57. Kyle Busch finished fourth from a starting position of 16th and posted an average running position of 5.38. His net gain rating of 2.59 suggests consistent on-track maneuvering. Joey Logano rounded out the top five, with an average running position of 9.15.

Late-race incidents influenced multiple drivers' standings. Ryan Blaney, involved in the lap 97 incident, dropped from 17th at the start to finish in 38th but held an average running position of 11.58. Brad Keselowski similarly had a wild fluctuation in his race performance, starting 19th and finishing 39th, despite an efficient average running position of 8.27 and a net gain rating of 2.30. This shows that the late caution at lap 97 played a significant role, turning the latter part of the race into a bonanza of position changes.
