Noah Gragson was the big story in qualifying. The 18 year old took the pole, and then hours later, donned a cap and gown for a track-side pre-race high school graduation ceremony. He'd ultimately finish in seventh.© Rip Shaub - All Rights Reserved

10 cautions meant plenty of restarts. #4 Christopher Bell held the lead for almost 80 laps before yielding to Chase Briscoe (to his right) for 5 laps. The white flag crash found Bell inches ahead of Briscoe when the yellow came out, handing him the win under caution.© Rip Shaub - All Rights Reserved
