Kenseth pushed Bowyer below the yellow line on the back stretch with two to go but was passed by Tony Stewart coming to the line with one to go.
As the race approached the final turn Stewart was turned. Kenseth crossed the line first as a flurry of wrecked happened behind him. It was the second win of the year for Kenseth, who also won the Daytona 500. Jeff Gordon was credited with a second place finish.Kyle Busch, David Ragan and Regan Smith rounded out the top five. Greg Biffle was originally scored fifth but NASCAR determined he did not maintain proper speed coming to the line following the last lap crash.
During the wreck Tony Stewart’s car caught air and was on top of Kasey Kahne’s car at one point. Also involved in the wreck were Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Michael Waltrip, Ryan Newman, Kasey Kahne, Paul Menard, Clint Bowyer, Dave Blaney, Marcos Ambrose, Casey Mears, David Ragan and several others were involved.

Following the wreck Jimmie Johnson took a ride from Dale Earnhardt Jr back to the garage as he rode on the side of the No. 88 Chevrolet.
This all happened after a wreck set up a green white checkered.
Jamie McMurray was turned by Kevin Harvick while leading coming to the line with five laps to go. This brought out a caution that seemed to ensure that everyone would have enough fuel to make it to the finish. A handful of cars opted not to pit for fuel and stayed out. Eleven cars in total did not pit. They are Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick, Trevor Bayne, Tony Stewart, Regan Smith, Aric Almirola, Michael Waltrip, Terry Labonte, Kasey Kahne and David Ragan.
An early highlight of the race occurred when Kurt Busch ran out of fuel while leading. Busch then received damage when he made contact with the outside wall after being spun by McMurray. Busch was then parked for the event after taking off without his helmet on. Busch defended his actions saying he was trying to drive the car tot he garage.
Kasey Kahne scored his first pole at a restrictor plate track and his third overall. Brad Keselowski extended his points lead to 14 over Jimmie Johnson. Gordon moved to 42 points out of the lead.
