A dominant day for Stewart Haas Racing ends with a much needed win for one of their four playoff contenders. Kurt Busch ran out of gas on the final lap of overtime, which allowed Aric Almirola to surge to his first win in the #10 Ford. Almirola locked up a spot in the Round of 8 with his second career victory and avenged his late defeat one week
earlier at Dover. Clint Bowyer finished second while Busch was 14th and Kevin Harvick 29th after a late stop for fuel. The four Stewart Haas teammates did combine to lead 155 of the 193 laps, spending much of the day all running in the top four spots.
