Crafton had led 133 laps of the 167-lap race before being passed by the 18-year-old Byron. Crafton had recovered after causing the first caution of the night by cutting a tire and smacking the wall. Although Crafton didn’t end up continuing his winning streak at both Texas and this season (both ended at two), he did finish second and held on to the points lead.
Byron’s race wasn’t over after getting around Crafton, however. During the final two laps, a hard charging Rico Abreu almost passed his fellow rookie driver, but Abreu went too high in the first two turns on the white flag lap and hit the wall. Abreu cut a tire and ended the night finishing ninth, his best career finish.
Finishing in third was pole sitter Johnny Sauter, his fourth top five of the season. Ben Kennedy had his best finish of the season in fourth while Tyler Reddick rounded out the top five, his third straight top-10 finish.
