The field would go back green with 44 laps to go in the stage, with Kevin Harvick in the lead with his Stewart -Hass teammates in 2dn,  3rd, and 4th. However, a lap later, Kyle Busch would take over the lead, starting a back and forth battle between him and Harvick. On the inside lane, it was Harvick, Bowyer, Almirola and Kurt Busch of Stewart-Hass Racing, on the outside, it was Kyle Busch, Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones of the Joe Gibbs Racing Team.

With three laps to go in the stage, the field went back to green with Harvick still in the lead and his three Stewart-Hass teammates rounding out the top 4.

Harvick would hold on a win the stage with his teammates rounding out the top four.
