Ty Gibbs lined up fourth on the restart behind leader Ryan Sieg in the second attempt for a two-lap overtime. With the two drivers having some recent history on the track, many thought that Gibbs may try to push Sieg to the victory to make up and make nice for what occurred in Las Vegas.
Gibbs did exactly that by pushing Sieg to the front of the pack but shortly after he received a push from AJ Allmendinger giving him the momentum to pull down and past Sieg for the lead.
“If there’s a gap, you’ve got to take it,” Gibbs said. “There almost wasn’t a gap but there was, so I sent it. And we won it.
“We came back from 29th and trouble on pit road. The win is awesome, still a lot of things I have to fix and work on, but let’s go, heck yeah!
“I wouldn’t be here without my team. Thank you to A.J. for pushing me. What the heck? That was so cool. I learned a hard lesson – just never give up.”
Sieg finished 10th.
