1st Kyle Busch had a solid 5th place car all night, finishing 5th in both stages and running 3rd before the wreck leading him to the win.
2nd Reddick ran solid in the top 15/10 for most of the day, not pitting after the stage break put him in 4th and position to capitalize on his speed and get out to the lead
3rd Joey Logano had a solid top ten car all night, finishing top 3
4th Larson looked good all night, wining stage 1 but I felt he was sitting around 5th for most of the night
5th Blaney finished both stages in 9th, ran around tenth all night long, but staying out helped keep him up front
6th Alex Bowman had himself an up and down day spinning and getting caught up in the back, he rallied back in the 3rd stage for a 6th place finish
7th Bell had a better night than his finish, I feel like he was in the top 5 and a real contender for most of the night
