Allmendinger led 30 of the 90 laps in the race to get the win. The race featured a number of stoppages due to wrecks, but Allmendinger stayed composed and found a way to hold off Marcos Ambrose in the late stages of the race to get the big victory.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Allmendinger had 12/1 odds to win this race coming into the week, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $1,200.

Allmendinger moves to 24th in the current standings with the win, but the victory will likely be enough to get him into the new Chase for the Championship format. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is now the points leader by 5 over Jeff Gordon after Dale Jr. finished 11th on Sunday and Gordon finished 34th.
