In a competitive race over 200 laps, Brad Keselowski secured victory, having started in the 2nd position and finishing 1st. Justin Allgaier, despite leading the initial laps from pole, ended in 2nd. Both drivers maintained their places near the front throughout the race, with an ARP closely mirroring their start and finish, indicating consistent performance without significant positional changes.

Kyle Busch, starting 5th, finished in 3rd place, closely trailed by Christopher Bell who maintained his 4th position start to finish. Jamie McMurray began in the 6th spot and finished 5th. Notably, Elliott Sadler moved from a 24th start to secure a 9th place finish, making significant positional gains relative to his starting position. Tyler Reddick’s progression from a 40th place start to a top-10 finish in 10th was remarkable, though his detailed GR-LR was not noteworthy.

A wild final third of the race saw a caution due to an incident involving Matt Mills on lap 84, yet many drivers managed to maintain their momentum. Jeffrey Green, starting in 25th, finished last due to brake issues, highlighting how mechanical problems can make what seems a bonanza of positions lost. Despite numerous cautions, key drivers remained unfazed and performed strongly to the end.
