Stage 2 saw Allgaier maintain his dominance despite challenges, claiming another stage victory.

In the final stage, Allgaier faced pressure from contenders like Riley Herbst, with the race witnessing strategic green-flag pit stops and caution periods. A dramatic sequence of events unfolded in the closing laps, including a surprising challenger in Ryan Sieg, who briefly took the lead before being edged out by Mayer in the thrilling photo finish.
