Ross Chastain started in the second position and secured a first-place finish, maintaining a consistent top spot throughout the race. Tyler Ankrum, who began in ninth, maneuvered his way to a second-place finish, while Harrison Burton, starting sixth, finished third, showing stability in his performance.

Among notable performances, Todd Gilliland demonstrated stability by finishing in the same position he started, seventh. Matt Crafton advanced two spots, starting from eighth and finishing sixth. On the other end, Sheldon Creed suffered a significant setback, starting from the fifth position but finishing 25th due to an oil leak; a clear indicator that mechanical issues derailed his average running position.

A wild moment occurred during Lap 2 when an accident between car #52 and car #15 led to their involvement in a Turn 1 incident. Anthony Alfredo, starting 14th, and Stewart Friesen, starting third, were directly affected, resulting in finishes at 31st and 32nd respectively, under the damaged vehicle policy. The event became a bonanza for position changes, significantly impacting the final standings for several drivers.
