Kevin Harvick rounded out the top five, starting at tenth and finishing fifth with an ARP of 5.37 and a net gain rating of 2.99. Notable efforts like those from Ross Chastain and Daniel Suarez showed that gains can often turn into wild runs up the field, evidenced by their respective jumps from first and nineteenth starting positions to finish eighth and ninth.
