The No. 16 Ortho Ford was loose at the beginning of the race and especially loose at the start of long green flag runs. Toward the end of long runs the Ortho Ford came around and Biffle was able to make up ground on competitors who had used up their tires
Wedge and air pressure adjustments were used throughout the race to help with handling, but restarts and the start of long green flag runs continued to be a challenge. Despite the challenges Biffle was solidly on the lead lap.Just after a pit stop with a little over 50 laps remaining, Biffle reported to his crew that he had a loose wheel. The unscheduled green flag stop to fix the loose wheel cost Biffle a lap to the leaders. A closing lap caution made Biffle the “lucky dog” recipient and he was back on the lead lap. With so few laps remaining Biffle was unable to make up ground on the field, resulting in the 27th-place finish.
