Kyle Busch led the race from start to finish, concluding a flawless performance with a first-place finish. Despite no gain rating impact, Busch maintained his lead status throughout 60 laps. Erik Jones, who started 31st, made notable gains, advancing 29 positions to finish second. His rise in positions marked a significant improvement in his race performance. Dalton Sargeant also remained consistent, finishing third from a fourth-place start without impacting his net gain rating.

A late caution caused some deviation for drivers running inside the top ten. Todd Gilliland, starting second, dropped to seventh by the final lap. His position differential might suggest the caution influenced his race. Meanwhile, Matt Crafton moved from his 20th starting spot to finish ninth, exemplifying a solid gain rating performance. Johnny Sauter and Myatt Snider finished eighth and twelfth, respectively, after starting within the top ten.

Disruptions and mechanical issues led to varying race outcomes. For instance, Camden Murphy finished 29th after starting 22nd due to electrical issues. Reed Sorenson and JJ Yeley also experienced significant setbacks ending their races in lower positions due to technical problems. But despite these issues and several cautions, the race concluded with a wild shift in placements, showcasing the bonanza nature of a NASCAR event.
