Ryan Newman was third, while Kyle Busch finished fifth, the two drivers who are not Penske in the top five.
Martin Truex Jr. had to face the final moments of Stage 2 when a loose wheel dropped him from third position to 24th and two laps down.

The first part of Stage 1 saw a lot of action. A warning came out just after lap 1 was completed for a lap with Kyle Busch. The incident also sent Aric Almirola to the garage and ended his day. That precaution saved Kevin Harvick, who was serving a penalty for a failed inspection before the race three times, to give several laps at that time.
Polesitter Chase Elliott took a lap on the stage on lap 39 as he could not avoid Ryan Preece completely, who had turned just before that. Then, Elliott reported problems with his power steering in the No. 9 Chevrolet. Before the warning, Elliott had led every turn of the stage.
The loose wheels sent Erik Jones and Kyle Larson to the pit road to make unscheduled pit stops during the initial stage.
