BMR teammates Lawless Alan finished 10th in the No. 12 AUTOParkit Toyota Camry, Hailie Deegan 11th in the No. 19 Monster / NAPA Power Premium Plus Toyota Camry, and series rookie Brittney Zamora 12th in the No. 99 ENEOS / NAPA Filters Toyota Camry.

Kraus took advantage of a scramble among the leaders in the opening lap to gain multiple spots after starting ninth. He was up to second by Lap 11 and took the lead after a Lap 25 restart, but was passed at the midway point of the race and fell to second. He slipped to third in a drag race to the checkered flag.
