Hamlin started on the pole and led the first 41 laps.

Larson also led before and after a cycle of green-flag pit stops. Harvick then took the lead on lap 70 and drove on to the opening-stage win.

Hamlin and Harvick both led laps in the early laps of the second stage before Larson retook the lead on a restart that followed a lap-93 caution and dominated the second stage.

Larson struggled in the second half of the race. He made two pit stops because of a missing wheel spacer during the fifth caution of the race, despite having recently pitted during a green-flag cycle of stops.

Larson then made hard contact with the wall, bringing out the eighth caution of the race on lap 283. The race was red-flagged for cleanup.

Three playoff drivers found themselves off the lead lap early in the race.

Keselowski and Kyle Busch made contact on the first lap that sent them both to pit road and at least a lap down.

Keselowski got back on the lead lap early in the second stage. By lap 200, he was inside the top five, due in part to pit strategy.

Jimmy Johnson fell off the lead lap when he made an unscheduled pit stop for a vibration before lap 70. By the end of the second stage, he was three laps down. He finished 27th.

Busch and Johnson were the only two playoff drivers who finished outside the top 10.
