The 90-lap event saw a variety of driver movements that highlighted the competitive nature of the race. Jeb Burton, starting from the 9th position, finished in first place with an average running position (ARP) of 6.06 and net gain rating (GR-LR) of 5.09, which is notable. Austin Cindric, despite leading for 33 laps, managed to secure a 2nd place finish from the pole position, maintaining an ARP of 3.82 and a net gain rating of 6.02. AJ Allmendinger started 11th and crossed the line in 3rd, with an ARP of 10.71 and a GR-LR of 3.32.

The wild aspect of the race became evident when drivers like Ryan Sieg, who started 17th, finished in 5th place with an ARP of 25.14. His significant shift in positions marked one of the greatest movements during the race. Meanwhile, Noah Gragson started 4th but finished 6th, maintaining an ARP of 8.42, indicating relatively stable but not podium-level performance. Notably, the large incident on lap 86 impacted several drivers, including Brandon Jones, Noah Gragson, Joe Graf Jr, Caesar Bacarella, Ty Dillon, and others. This late caution invalidated the ARP of some drivers, particularly Brandon Jones, who had an ARP of 10.14 but finished 37th.

Incidents tended to spoil several races under the damaged vehicle policy (dvp). Teammates Bayley Currey and Caesar Bacarella both exited under DVP and overheated engines, respectively. While the bonanza of lap leaders shifted consistently, Jeb Burton ended strong, retaking the lead towards the end, a position he held from lap 82. Despite the chaotic final laps, the race concluded with Jeb Burton's notable victory, confirming his strategy and consistency across the 90 laps.
