Kyle Larson clinched the win from the second position, finishing first after 200 laps. He maintained a strong presence, leading in average running position and net gain rating a perfect zero, indicating consistent results in terms of gain and loss. Christopher Bell, who started from pole position, managed to secure second place. Justin Allgaier exhibited notable progression, closing in from 12th to 3rd place.

The race saw significant movement particularly from Brandon Jones who moved from 16th to 7th place, and Michael Annett advancing from 19th to 13th. These gains illustrate a wild fluctuation in positions during the race. However, there was also prominent regression observed in Tommy Joe Martins, who fell from 8th to 25th position, and Austin Cindric who dropped drastically from 15th to 34th following an accident.

The bonanza of incidents impacted several drivers. At Lap 135, Austin Cindric and Tommy Joe Martins were involved in an incident in Turn 2, attributing to their results. The final caution at Lap 191 involved Ross Chastain and Kaz Grala in an incident on the backstretch, likely spoiling their ARP, as both finished in poorer positions than expected, at 18th and 16th respectively. The cumulative impact of these incidents influenced race outcomes significantly.
