Jimmie Johnson, who led forty-two laps, won the race, while Denny Hamlin and Tony Stewart finished second and third respectively.

No time trials took place because of rain during the previous days. A live audience of 63,000 people attended the event, which lasted three hours and twenty-seven minutes.

Robby Gordon, Joe Nemechek and Dave Blaney also failed to finish the race. 13% of the race was run under caution; the average green flag run lasted approximately 33 laps. Most of the incidents that brought out the yellow flag were crashes. Five drivers failed to qualify for the race including Sterling Marlin, Tony Raines and Dennis Setzer.[1]
