Joey Logano clinched victory from the 26th starting spot, finishing first with an average running position of 17.03. His net gain rating was 3.89, suggesting a strong performance throughout the race. Logano led the final nine laps, overtaking Denny Hamlin, who commanded much of the race before finishing 12th with a solid ARP of 4.14. Hamlin's result likely suffered due to a late caution disrupting his control.

Zane Smith started 36th and finished second, holding an ARP of 30.82 and a negative GR-LR of -1.84, indicating his performance may need to be scrutinized. Tyler Reddick was notable as he started 6th and finished 3rd with an impressive ARP of 5.56 and leading several laps. Daniel Hemric fought his way from 37th to 9th but recorded an ARP of 26.99 and a net loss rating of -2.99, signifying struggles on the track despite the position gain.

The race saw significant wild fluctuations in running positions due to numerous incidents and Strategy Bonanza. For example, Ross Chastain, despite leading laps 249 to 293, finished 33rd following an accident late in the race. Christopher Bell had the best ARP, leading substantial segments but ended 36th due to a crash. This data shows the vital impact of race management and incident recovery on final standings.
