Kyle Larson clinched victory, leading for a remarkable span and holding the top average running position (2.80). Starting from fourth and finishing first, Larson's net gain rating of 6.71 underscores his strong performance. Chris Buescher, who led laps at crucial stages, finished second with an average running position of 4.03 and a net gain rating of 4.82.

Chase Elliott, starting ninth and finishing third, had a notable ARP of 11.65. Despite Denny Hamlin's late-race dominance, leading 108 laps from lap 63 to lap 262, a late spin incident impacted his performance, dropping him to a fifth-place finish. Hamlin's GR-LR stood at 4.88. Kyle Busch, fluctuating between front and mid-pack, ended eighth with an ARP of 4.99.

Incidents defined the race's latter half. An accident on lap 177 involving Corey LaJoie, Daniel Hemric, and Jimmie Johnson, followed by another caution on lap 186, affected notable names including Denny Hamlin. This chaos likely contributed to a wild shuffle in positions, leading to a bonanza of gains and losses. Ross Chastain demonstrated early aggression but ultimately fell back to 19th due to late-race dynamics, despite a consistent ARP (10.03). Larson managed to navigate through the critical last laps, reclaiming his lead and ultimately the win.
