Right off the bat a car had issues during its run. Matt Mills spun around and rear-ended the outside wall as the first car on a dirty track and didn’t finish his lap.

NASCAR blew the dirt off the track after the wreck, and no other issues occurred thereafter, except for a save from Sheldon Creed. Unfortunately, Mills didn’t qualify for the race as a result. Brennan Poole and Mason Massey also did not make the event.
