RaceEdit

SummaryEdit

Austin Cindric started on pole. Christopher Bell overtook him and remained in the lead. Tyler Reddick got loose next to Brandon Jones, but managed to save it. The first caution occurred after Jairo Avila Jr. slammed the wall hard. Bell retook the lead after the caution and won Stage 1.

Justin Haley exited pit road first after only taking two tires as opposed to four. He was unable to hold the lead and was passed by Jones. Cindric got loose next to Haley, turning the rear of Cindric's car into the wall and causing damage to Haley's car. Bell took the lead from Jones until Ronnie Bassett Jr. spun out and brought out the next caution. Bell charged to the front and won Stage 2.

Jones was leading the race with half of the race completed when his engine blew, eliminating him from the race and giving the lead to Chase Briscoe. Later, Cole Custer and Bell passed Briscoe and remained in their positions. Custer continued his dominating lead, lapping the majority of the field. He won the race with a one second lead over Bell. Custer's strong run resulted in only five cars finishing on the lead lap.
