RaceEdit

SummaryEdit

Cole Custer started on the pole and dominated the two stages, leading the first 156 laps. Kaz Grala spun after a bump by John Hunter Nemechek with 47 laps to go, causing a caution. Custer lost the race on pit road to Christopher Bell, and was unable to retake the lead due to dirty air. After restarting on the bottom lane, Custer was overtaken by Tyler Reddick and struggled to recover.

Riley Herbst spun and brought out the next caution. On the restart, Bell pulled away while Reddick and Justin Allgaier nearly wrecked battling for second place. The final caution occurred when Gray Gaulding spun out shortly afterwards, also collecting Vinnie Miller. Bell managed to pull away on the restart and held off Allgaier to win the race and Dash 4 Cash prize money.
