Ultimately, there were 13 cautions during the race, which made a run at the record number of cautions for the race and tied the highest total of cautions for the year. Greg Biffle led after the drop of the green flag, but only held the point for the first four laps, after that Hamlin dominated the race, leading 138 of the 200 laps. His only real challenge came late in the race when Martin Truex Jr. stayed out on a late race caution and tried to use track position to his advantage. Hamlin restarted sixth but quickly moved back to the front and assumed the lead for the final time on lap 186. Truex was able to hold onto second, Matt Kenseth finished an unassuming third, Mike Bliss had a strong effort to finish fourth and Reed Sorenson put in a workmanlike fifth-place run.
