Kyle Busch was second, and Martin Truex Jr. was third. Truex led for 47 laps of the race.

The race was paused for 15 minutes after a red flag came out so crews could fix wrecked barrels.

It was a big first stage for Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Stenhouse earned points, which is great news for him considering he’s on the brink of being eliminated from the playoffs today.
