The fourth and final caution of the day came out when Aaron Fike spun into the turn 3 wall. As if that wasn't bad enough. As Fike tried to drive away, along came Hermie Sadler and Sadler t-boned the Fike ride right in the door. Both drivers were okay.
McMurray got past Kevin Harvick with just 20 laps to go and held on for the checkered flag in the Goody's Headache Powder 200.
