The race was set to begin and finish during the day, but a rainstorm pushed things back to a race under the lights. There were a few big wrecks, but Jr. had the top car and it showed at the end. After finishing second three of the last four years, he finally broke through to win on Sunday.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Earnhardt Jr. had 10/1 odds to win this race, which means a wager of $100 to win will pay out an additional $1,000.

The race ended with a green-white-checkered finish. Earnhardt had the lead to start and pulled away early. He held off a late surge from the likes of Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski to get the victory.
