Kevin Harvick and Michael Annett finished in third and fourth ahead of Justin Allgaier and Sam Hornish Jr., with Brad Keselowski and Ricky Stenhouse Jr the only other cars to finish on the lead lap. Elliott Sadler was the first man a lap down, having originally been passed on track by Dillon just after the midway point on lap 106.
Danica Patrick finished two laps down in 12th place, while Sprint Cup regular Denny Hamlin had a troubled evening of it in the Joe Gibbs Racing #18 when he first suffered from rear tyre chatter and then exited the race altogether with engine problems to be classified as finishing in 33rd place. His team mate Brian Scott also suffered an engine failure in the #11 with 24 laps to run. The JGR stable has been suffering from technical and engine gremlins in their Cup cars as well, and if alarm bells weren't ringing for the team before then they should be now.
The win puts Dillon at the top of the Nationwide Series points standings ahead of Elliott Sadler, but that's unlikely to last long as the #3 failed post-race inspection for having too low a ride height at the rear. That usually means a points penalty will be coming in the midweek adjudications, and with Dillon's lead over Sadler a mere 2pts it's almost certain to bump him back down to second place again.
But as long as it doesn't affect the win itself - and it won't - then Dillon and his grandfather won't care. The trip to victory lane and the entry in the record books are what really counts, and those are signed and sealed.
