In the latest NASCAR race, Justin Allgaier emerged as the top finisher, moving up from his starting position of fifth to secure the win. Allgaier's ARP wasn't provided, but given that he finished first without significant setbacks, his performance was consistent at the front of the pack. Cole Custer, who started in second, maintained his position throughout the race, finishing where he began. Tyler Reddick showed a solid performance as well, advancing from fourth to third without any notable position losses.

John Hunter Nemechek exhibited a notable ARP with a net gain of nine positions, moving from a start of 13th to finish fourth. This improvement highlights his strong performance during green flag laps. Despite Zane Smith starting from the sixth position and finishing fifth, his positions gained weren't sufficient to indicate a significant difference, but overall, maintained a competitive stance throughout. Chase Briscoe's drop from third to eighth position, potentially influenced by the caution at lap 117 involving car #20, indicates a spoiled race due to the spin he got involved in.

Late-race challenges were seen with Christopher Bell, who dropped significantly from pole to finish 16th; an indicator of the caution at lap 117 playing a role. Bell's ARP would likely be higher if not for the spin. This race was a wild example of mid-race shuffling with anomalies impacting average positions, but it ended in a bonanza for those who managed to stay clear of the wrecks and mechanical issues. The rest of the field saw mixed results, with some like Tommy Joe Martins gaining ten positions, moving from 27th to 17th, showcasing his ability to capitalize on green flag laps.
