Ty Gibbs dominated the 100-lap race, leading every lap from start to finish, resulting in an average running position (ARP) of 1.0. His net gain rating (GR-LR) was neutral at 0.0, reflecting minimal position changes. Bubba Wallace started in fourth and maintained a strong performance, finishing second with an ARP of 2.03 and a net gain rating of 0.28. Josh Berry finished third, advancing four spots from his seventh-place start with an ARP of 6.43 and a gain rating of 0.92.

Notable in this wild race, several drivers showed significant performance changes. Justin Haley, who began in 16th, climbed to fourth, achieving a gain rating of 1.07 and an ARP of 10.59. In contrast, Austin Cindric faced setbacks, starting sixth but ending in 20th, with an ARP of 6.83 and GR-LR of -0.79, influenced by an early incident on lap 60 involving Noah Gragson. This late caution led to Cindric's average running position being compromised, resulting in his lower finish.

The stats reveal a bonanza for drivers who made significant gains compared to their starting positions. Alex Bowman and Chase Briscoe, both starting in the top three, still managed top-10 finishes despite mid-race challenges. Bowman ended sixth with an ARP of 4.11, while Briscoe took seventh with an ARP of 5.48. Ryan Preece moved from 12th to eighth, and Austin Dillon from 15th to ninth, showing resilience through the green flag laps. Despite a damaged vehicle policy (DVP) scenario for several cars, all drivers completed the race, adding to the competitive drive observed in the final standings.
