Shane Van Gisbergen started second and claimed victory with a final average running position (ARP) of 5.58. His net gain rating (GR-LR) was 2.97. Despite losing the lead to various drivers, Van Gisbergen reclaimed it in the final laps to secure first place, wrapping up a performance-driven day without interruptions.

Justin Allgaier began in the fifth spot, finishing second while holding the best ARP of 1.54. Allgaier led for an impressive stretch from lap 23 to lap 71. A late caution and a strong push by Van Gisbergen relegated him to second. Nonetheless, his speed score (SS) and gain rating indicate a continuous bonanza of steady performance, mitigating losses effectively.

Chandler Smith's incident on lap 69 with multiple cars, including Brandon Jones and Parker Kligerman, influenced his performance, concluding in 35th place. Kligerman persevered to finish eighth despite the setback, reflecting a wild lap-transition performance. In contrast, Sam Mayer suffered a significantly spoiled race due to incidents, starting on pole but plummeting to 28th by the finish, signaling a disrupted and caution-heavy second half.
