Notable movements include Mason Massey, who started 29th and finished 11th, indicating a significant positional improvement despite a low average running position of 25.33. Meanwhile, Daniel Dye moved from 23rd to 13th, showing steadier progress. The incidents involving the likes of Dean Thompson and Blake Lothian, who faced accidents and overheating respectively, resulted in poor finishes despite average running positions that suggested better potential. The multiple cautions contributed to the overall unpredictability and shifts in the field, particularly affecting drivers like Layne Riggs and Jack Wood, who had promising starts but finished poorly due to incidents mid-race.
