RaceEdit

SummaryEdit

Joey Logano began on pole. Cole Custer passed him after 3 laps. The first caution was thrown for Justin Allgaier spinning out on lap 13. Allgaier would later crash into the wall in the second half of the race, ending his day early. Custer and Logano continued to battle for the lead, with Custer winning the first stage. He would maintain the lead until Logano regained it on lap 80. A caution was thrown after Ryan Sieg spun out due to a flat tire, and Custer opted to pit, while Logano did not get tires and won the second stage.

Custer retook the lead on lap 116, dominating for the next run. He gave up the lead on lap 154 after taking a green-flag pit stop. Michael Annett and Noah Gragson decided to stay out and stretch their fuel run. B. J. McLeod made contact with the wall later, bringing out the final caution. Ross Chastain was able to return to the lead lap. The final green flag run lasted 21 laps. Custer jumped out to the lead and won the race with a 3-second lead over Logano.

After the raceEdit

Christopher Bell's car failed post-race inspection, disqualifying him from his third place finish. He was credited as finishing last, also losing his 17 stage points. For the inspection, NASCAR had the team take the shocks off the car so it can be compared to pre-race inspection. The front of Bell's car was "extremely low" and the rear was slightly higher. Bell's disqualification is the second one to occur under 2019's inspection format, following Chastain's disqualification in the truck series at Iowa in mid-June.
