RaceEdit

SummaryEdit

Tyler Reddick started on pole, and was challenging by Cole Custer in the opening laps. On lap 32, a caution was thrown for debris being stuck in the wall, causing Reddick and Custer to pit while Christopher Bell and Justin Allgaier stayed out. Custer managed to charge back to the front, only finishing behind teammate Chase Briscoe in Stage 1.

On lap 59, Custer made a pit stop for a loose wheel, causing him to go down one lap. He managed to weave past Austin Cindric and restarted in the final stage on the lead lap.

In the closing laps, Custer caught up to Reddick and took the lead. Reddick slid past Custer with under 20 laps remaining and pulled away, winning the race and the championship.
