In the latest NASCAR event spanning 150 laps, Christopher Bell clinched the victory, starting from the second position and finishing first. This victory was marred by several incidents affecting other drivers. Notably, Johnny Sauter started on pole and saw his chances diminish, concluding the race in ninth place. Chase Briscoe, who began in the third position, also experienced a plunge finishing 11th, influenced in part by a caution on lap 43 involving multiple cars.

Brandon Jones had a remarkable run, starting from 16th and advancing to secure second place. Drivers like Kyle Busch and Parker Kligerman also showcased significant gains, with Busch moving from 27th to sixth and Kligerman jumping from 30th to seventh, each benefiting from a wild sequence of cautions and race strategy. On the other hand, Grant Enfinger, who began in seventh, had his race spoiled by an accident and finished in 28th, shadowing the bonanza of position changes on the track.

Matt Crafton and Noah Gragson showed consistency, finishing close to their starting positions. Austin Cindric and Justin Haley, starting from 13th and 10th, respectively, made up ground to end in the top five. However, for some drivers, late-race incidents proved costly. T.J. Bell, involved in an accident on lap 115, ended up 26th despite running in the top 20 earlier. Similarly, the concluding lap mishaps affected Ben Rhodes and Grant Enfinger, preventing stronger finishes.
