Stenhouse stole the lead from David Ragan on an overtime restart and led the final two laps of the race.

A late crash involving Erik Jones, Denny Hamlin and Jamie McMurray sent the race into overtime.

Joey Logano, Austin Dillon, and Kevin Harvick?who won last week?were also eliminated after crashes.

Kyle Larson’s night came to an early end after he was involved in a crash that sent him airborne.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. didn’t finish the race either, and it was the fifth race this season he hasn’t finished.

Clint Bowyer finished second for the second straight week, and he was followed by Paul Menard, Michael McDowell, and Ryan Newman, respectively.

The next race is the Quaker State 400 on Saturday, July 8 at Kentucky Speedway.
