The race was broadcast in the United States on ESPN until 2015, when the race moved to Fox Sports networks. In 2016, the race was moved to the second week of May because of the NASCAR All-Star Race, and was 200 laps in total with two 40 lap heats and 120 lap main as part of the Xfinity 'Dash 4 Cash' program. In 2017, the race would not use the heat races and would utilize NASCAR's new stage format with stages 1 and 2 being 60 laps each, with last stage being the final 80 laps.

The 2020 race was originally scheduled for May 2 before being postponed to August 22 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of a revised track schedule, the race was held the day before the original fall event, also named the Drydene 200.[1][2]
