Joey Logano dominated the race by leading from the start to the finish in his No. 22 car. Logano's consistent performance is reflected in his net gain rating of 0.00, which indicates he maintained his starting position throughout the race. AJ Allmendinger in car 23 also showed strength, moving from the fourth position to finish second. Justin Allgaier, who started tenth, secured a third-place finish in car 7.

Brandon Jones made notable progress, starting 20th and finishing 7th, reflecting a significant improvement. Tyler Reddick had a wild day by moving up from 27th to finish 11th, suggesting strategic driving and perhaps benefiting from race incidents. Ryan Preece, with a start from the 8th position and finishing 4th, maintained a relatively stable average running position.

Several cautions impacted race outcomes. Stage breaks at laps 22 and 42 did not cause significant disruptions among the top finishers. However, late cautions at laps 68 and 73 potentially spoiled otherwise strong races, as seen with Austin Dillon and Kyle Larson, who ended in 25th and 27th despite starting in 6th and 3rd positions respectively. This race ended in a bonanza of position changes due to these late interruptions.
