Tyler Reddick, Ty Gibbs, Joey Hand and Michael McDowell completed the top five. Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Todd Gilliland, William Byron, Kyle Busch and Ryan Blaney rounded out the top 10.

Defending Chicago winner Shane van Gisbergen exited the race early in Stage 2 after contact from Chase Briscoe sent the No. 16 Chevrolet into the outside wall in Turn 6.

Shortly after, the race was delayed for one hour and 43 minutes due to inclement weather causing standing water on the course.

The Cup Series heads to Pennsylvania next Sunday for a trip to Pocono Raceway (2:30 p.m. ET, USA, MRN Radio, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, NBC Sports App).
