Matt DiBenedetto solidified his performance by securing the win from a 10th place start, achieving an average running position of 4.52 and a net gain rating of 2.25. Clint Bowyer followed closely with a second-place finish, having started 9th and maintaining an average running position of 4.95, with a gain rating of 1.76. In third place, Austin Dillon also demonstrated consistency, finishing three places ahead of his starting position with an average running position of 5.05.

Notable mentions include Ty Dillon and Michael McDowell, who both saw significant improvements in their positions despite varied challenges on the track. Ty Dillon advanced from 20th to 5th with an average running position of 9.28 and a gain rating of 1.78. McDowell, after leading the initial 10 laps but eventually falling back to 7th, maintained an average running position of 6.35 and a positive gain rating of 0.82. This result indicates a wild fluctuation in performance, yet McDowell managed to stay within the top 10.

Late cautions affected multiple drivers, disrupting their otherwise solid races. William Byron, after leading a bonanza of laps (36-70) and winning Stage 2, concluded the race in 19th with an average running position of 2.67. Aric Almirola, who led from laps 11-35 and won Stage 1, dropped to 20th, recording an average running position of 1.61. Both drivers’ final results starkly contrasted their earlier runs, suggestive of race events spoiling their average running positions.
