Kyle Larson secured the win after starting from the third position. His success can be identified as a result of maintaining a consistent ARP throughout the race, leading to his top finish. With Larson managing to fend off Christopher Bell, who maintained his second-place starting spot to finish second, both displayed high performance under green flag laps without notable changes in their positions. The race saw Justin Allgaier finishing third after a wild drive from his 10th-place start, reflecting significant net gain.

Despite Kyle Busch leading initially, a late incident at lap 71 ended his race prematurely, resulting in a 36th-place finish. This caution reset the race dynamics, spoiling Busch's ARP. Joey Logano also maintained proximity to the front, ending in fifth after beginning in fourth, denoting stable performance metrics. Meanwhile, Daniel Hemric, who initially started in the 11th position, faced an accident on lap 300, translating to a 24th-place finish. This incident, combined with a short stint under DVP, further reduced his effective ARP.

Michael Annett and Ryan Sieg exhibited notable advancements. Annett started from 22nd and finished 7th, demonstrating effective overtaking and a high GR-LR, indicative of strong performance during green flag laps. Sieg showed a similar trend, moving from 21st to 11th. These changes highlight a competitive bonanza, with several drivers significantly outpacing their expected positions by the end of the event.
