Richmond, VA — Cole Custer in the No. 00 led the field to the drop of the green flag and led the way for the first 18 laps. That is when we saw our first caution of the day as David Starr and his No. 52 machine stalled out going into turn two. None of the lead lap cars elected to pit under the caution.

The field went back to green on lap 24, with Custer still out in the front of the pack. Christopher Bell in the No. 20 would put up a battle for the lead with Custer and 19 laps later he would make the pass as Custer got help up in lapped traffic.

The second caution of the night would come out on lap 62 as Josh Bilicki in the No. 45 got loose and into the wall in turn 3. The green flag would drop on lap 69, as Daniel Hemric jumped out to the lead over Bell. Hemric would maintain that lead through the end of the first stage which came on lap 75.
