After a late caution flag, the race went to two final laps, with Chase Elliott in ninth place. He and his racing team chose to start in the outside lane, directly behind Ryan Newman. On the restart, Newman was unable to get into fifth gear and Elliott did not pass him, falling all the way to 22nd place.
