A late-race caution on lap 51 involved multiple drivers, impacting overall positions, including Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who led for 18 laps but finished 20th due to being caught under the damaged vehicle policy. Notably, Kyle Larson led for 32 laps and held a strong ARP of 3.65, ultimately finishing 9th, which deviated significantly from his early dominance, largely due to the late-race dynamics.
