The No. 9 of William Byron would take the pole for Round 7 of the Paramount Kia "Big 10" Chase for the Championship. The caution flag was displayed early when the No. 7 of Ashley Huffman had  an engine problem on lap three and ended his night. Racing resumed with multiple battles throughout the 23 car field. As the race neared the midpoint, it was a three-car battle for the lead between the No. 44 of Dillon Bassett, No. 00 of Shane Lee and the No. 8 of David Garbo Jr. while a five car battle for fourth was closing in, lead by the No. 45 of Dalton Sargeant, with the No. 23 of Peyton Ryan, the No. 88 of Josh Berry, the No. 36 of Anthony Anders and the pole sitter of Byron in their tracks.

Pelfrey finished in the second position, while the No. 1 of Trent Barnes, No. 77 of Travis Byrd and Pierce rounded out the top five.
