The field was led to the green by pole winner Ty Gibbs. Ty, later, had transmission problems and was forced from the race.
Earlier in the day, the Cup Series held one of the few practices it has held this season. It was supposed to be a fifty minute practice, but was interrupted by several racing incidents. Two of these crashes caused Kyle Busch and Ryan Preece to pull out the back up cars. They will be forced to start from the back of the field. Due to the stoppages, NASCAR added 5 minutes to the practice. It was Kurt Busch in the #1 Monster Energy Chevrolet winning practice.
