Chase Briscoe clinched victory after a wild race, marking a notable achievement with an average running position (ARP) of 4.02. Briscoe's gain rating (GR) of 2.81 demonstrates significant performance in overtaking during the race. His net gain rating (GR-LR) reflects efficient race strategy and minimal position losses. Kyle Busch, starting at 26th, surged to finish second with an ARP of 5.75 and a strong GR of 3.95. His rise in positions gained for a majority of laps highlights his capability to capitalize on track opportunities despite the initial grid position.

Justin Allgaier finished third, maintaining an ARP of 3.47 and a net gain rating of 1.85. He captured the lead briefly on Lap 94 and Lap 95 before transitioning back, indicating solid performance but not enough to outlast Briscoe. Noah Gragson, who dominated early laps leading from Lap 1 through Lap 17, eventually fell back to finish fifth. His ARP of 2.74 and a GR of only 0.33 reflect that despite an early lead, his performance under the green flag laps (GF Laps) couldn't sustain the same pace.

Michael Annett, starting second, experienced a spoiled race, finishing 25th due to a late-race spin on Lap 133, affecting his overall ARP of 8.42. The damaged vehicle policy (DVP) appeared to have no notable effect on the leading drivers but Brandon Brown’s 6th place start and 13th place finish paired with an ARP of 13.94 indicate a less effective race strategy and position retention, painting a broader picture of the bonanza that made up such a technically intricate race day.
