Morris was in fifth place when he made his first pit stop on lap 47. He came off pit road in eighth and was back to fifth a couple of laps later.

Halfway through the race, Morris was down to seventh. A yellow flag was dropped with 21 laps to go and Morris was in eighth when the field went green again.

He was in fourth a couple of laps later. With 12 laps to go, Morris moved up another position to third.
