The race at the 150-lap track saw Brett Moffitt take victory, starting from the fifth position and making gains to secure the win. Noah Gragson, who began in pole position, finished a close second. Harrison Burton maintained his starting position of third throughout the race. Grant Enfinger and Stewart Friesen, who started 12th and fourth respectively, rounded out the top five. Notably, Tyler Ankrum moved up from 15th to finish sixth, highlighting a significant position gain.

The mid-pack saw varied outcomes. Johnny Sauter and Derek Kraus maintained strong performances, finishing seventh and eighth, respectively. Christian Eckes moved up slightly from 11th to finish ninth, while Sheldon Creed made a notable jump from 16th to finish 10th. Meanwhile, Matt Crafton and Ben Rhodes, who started ninth and sixth, fell back to finish 11th and 12th. The race also featured a wild finish for drivers like Chase Purdy and Todd Gilliland, who had fluctuating positions but ended 13th and 17th, respectively.

Cautions had a significant impact on the race, particularly towards the end. John Hunter Nemechek, who started seventh, spun out on lap 129, causing a caution that eventually led to his 29th place finish due to suspension issues. The late caution on lap 144 following Riley Herbst's spin affected multiple drivers' average running positions and finish outcomes. Despite these incidents, the race concluded with no DVP interventions. This statistical bonanza showcases the impact of green flag performance and the effects of race management.
