John Hunter Nemechek showcased his consistency by finishing first despite starting eighth, representing a notable performance metric in a race marked by significant position changes. His ability to navigate through the 250-lap race without major incidents was crucial. Brett Moffitt’s net gain by starting seventh and finishing third also points to steady performance metrics. Both drivers highlighted their technical acumen without being significantly impacted by the various incidents on the track.

Ben Rhodes, who started in the pole position, saw a notable decline, finishing twelfth. This drop can be attributed to involvement in several incidents, notably the Lap 87 and Lap 225 incidents, which clearly disrupted his race flow. Similarly, Matt Crafton, who started second and ended fifteenth, saw his chances diminish due to a possible late caution impact, likely invalidating his Average Running Position.

The race saw a wild bonanza of position shifts, particularly with drivers like Timothy Peters moving from sixteenth to seventh and Cory Roper advancing from seventeenth to thirteenth. Justin Fontaine faced the worst setback, moving from nineteenth to twenty-eighth due to an accident on Lap 160. This race’s data underscores the significant influence of track incidents and cautions on final standings, with the latter stages causing considerable shake-ups in the order.
