In the race, Ryan Truex finished first after starting from the 12th position, with an average running position (ARP) of 9.60 and a net gain rating (GR-LR) of 2.61. Carson Kvapil, starting from 26th, came in second place. His ARP was 11.61, and his net gain rating was 2.92. Despite starting from 20th place, Sam Mayer secured the third spot with an ARP of 13.36 and a net gain rating of 1.86. Sheldor Creed managed the fourth position, starting from the 5th spot, with a notable ARP of 5.41 and a gain rating of 1.93. Cole Custer, who showed early dominance in the race by leading from Lap 73 to Lap 164, finished fifth, maintaining a low ARP of 3.41 and a positive net gain rating of 2.78.

The race had several notable shifts in the leaderboard, with multiple leaders including Brandon Jones in the early laps, Jesse Love taking command around mid-race, and Cole Custer showing strong performance throughout most laps. However, Austin Hill led during the critical last quarter until the final caution period around lap 185 impacted the final results. It's a statistical bonanza indicating varied lead changes and the importance of managing positions on a caution-filled track. The last segment saw multiple incidents leading to the final shift in positions towards the race's end, notably favoring Ryan Truex.

Incidents significantly affected some drivers. For example, Justin Allgaier, who led a considerable portion from laps 14 to 47 and later from laps 168 to 172, finally finished in 17th position due to multiple late-race accidents impacting his ARP of 4.33. Brandon Jones, leading initially from lap 1 to 13, finished 19th with a spoiled ARP of 10.42, likely due to the lap 175 incident. The wild nature of this race underscores the volatility and the necessity for strategic maneuvers to convert a strong running position into a favorable finish amid frequent cautions.
