Ross Chastain clinched victory starting from 4th and finishing 1st. His stable performance was evident, showing a net gain rating (GR-LR) of 0. Despite significant race disruptions, he maintained his edge to win. Notably, Tyler Reddick, despite starting in the pole position and leading at various stages, fell to 16th place by the finish, suggesting his average running position (ARP) was impacted by a late-race caution, spoiling his result.

Justin Haley and Christopher Bell also had commendable finishes, ending in 2nd and 3rd places, respectively. Both started in the top 10 and sustained their positions throughout the race. The wild nature of the race saw Austin Cindric and Stephen Leicht maneuver through the field from their initial positions of 19th and 25th, respectively, to finish in the top 5, each demonstrating strong net ratings and strategic positioning.

Several drivers had incidents, including Michael Annett and Joe Graf Jr., who were involved in accidents causing them to end their races early. These collisions led to extensive damaged vehicle policy (DVP) implications, removing them from contention. The race was a bonanza of position changes and caution flags, yet some drivers like Jeremy Clements and Matt Mills showed resilience, climbing from deep in the pack to secure top 10 finishes.
