Erik Jones won the race with a Margin of Victory: 0.392 Seconds. Erik Jones said “It was tough, I knew we were in a good spot on tires, but we pretty far back – think we restarted 6th there. I didn’t know if my Hisense Camry was going to have enough time to get back up to the front, but we had a really good restart and got clear to third and then just had to go chase Elliott down. It was a matter of time before we got around him. What an awesome day!”
