Todd Gilliland, starting from the second position, finished in the sixth spot. Differing sharply from his initial position, Ty Majeski dropped several places. Majeski's performance underscores the volatility seen in the race. Drivers like Tyler Young, who started in twentieth and finished seventh, showcased significant progress, but his performance was short of a bonanza. Dalton Sargeant made substantial gains, moving from twenty-eighth to eleventh, marking one of the significant positional improvements of the race.

Several incidents led to noteworthy positional shifts. Brett Moffitt had a promising start at seventh but had his race spoiled, finishing eighteenth due to multiple incidents that required caution. Some drivers like Myatt Snider and Jennifer Jo Cobb ended their races due to accidents, thereby validating the wild unpredictability of such events. Despite the number of caution laps, most drivers managed to finish, whether running or with minor car issues, as governed under the DVP.
