Corey Lajoie stayed on the sidelines while the rest of the field participated in the pit stops, but he could not keep behind Buescher, who went through the pit stops due to four tyres. Buescher led the final nine laps of the stage to win and qualify for the All-Star race for the second time in his career.

“Our team has done a good job from the moment we started training and qualifying, and we were able to break into the All-Star race,” Buescher said.

At the final stage, Tyler Reddick spun around on move 4, touched the wall and was hit Harrison Burtonwith nowhere to go, ending Reddick’s hopes of an All-Star race.

Suárez won the final stage and qualified for the All-Star race for the third time in his career.
