Josh Berry dominated the race, securing the win after starting from 29th position. Berry displayed a notable average running position (ARP) of 5.93 and a strong net gain rating (GR-LR) of 4.09, indicating his effective performance throughout the race. His consistent lead from Lap 78 to Lap 250 solidified his victory, creating a wild shift in the race dynamics. Noah Gragson, who also had a commendable ARP of 5.71, finished second after starting eighth. His net gain rating of 3.97 underscores his steady performance.

Daniel Hemric maintained an impressive ARP of 7.98 and finished third, having started fourth, with a net gain rating of 2.75. Ty Gibbs, starting from the 16th position, worked his way to fourth with an ARP of 7.92 and a net gain rating of 3.34. Gibbs' performance in the final segment was notable but ultimately not enough to overtake Berry. Brandon Jones, who started 24th, finished fifth with an ARP of 7.80 and a net gain rating of 3.01. His performance indicates a significant improvement but wasn't sufficient for a podium spot.

Several incidents and cautions influenced the race's dynamics. The sixth caution, an accident involving four cars, marked a significant point, impacting drivers like Josh Williams (spin on Lap 107) but still allowing him to complete the race. Notably, AJ Allmendinger, who started third, finished 13th due to a late caution, impacting his ARP of 23.97. Such occurrences added to a bonanza of positional changes, particularly among mid-field contenders.
