In the end, Brad Keselowski earned the win when Brian Scott got a bad restart on the next to last caution, allowing the No. 22 to move into the lead. A visibly upset Scott was quick to place blame on Keselowski, saying he clearly jumped the final two restarts. Scott said he would have to check with NASCAR on the rules because the way he understood them and the way the end of the race played out were vastly different.
Keselowski’s win was his fifth of the season and third career victory at RIR. He said he didn’t believe he jumped the restart and called the procedure an “inexact science.”
Regan Smith finished third, calling it a good, solid night.
Elliott Sadler, who drove a special paint scheme honoring Hall of Fame Inductee Jack Ingram, finished eighth.
Sam Hornish Jr. retained his points lead with a 16-point advantage over Austin Dillon.
