After review of scoring, a change in the finishing order resulted in Randy Humphrey being credited with fourth place moving Joey Miller and Ned Combs to fifth and sixth place respectively. Miller was passed by the leaders on lap 128 and Combs on lap 121. Humphrey was running on the lead lap when he was caught in an accident on lap 140. All of the cars involved were scored for lap 140 since the accident happened beyond the start/finish line. Humphrey was able to get his car rolling prior to being passed by the leaders. He was however inadvertently held by the pace car on the backstretch due to the red flag being displayed and thus passed by the leaders during realignment of the field according to the running order. Therefore he was not able to catch up to the field and subsequently was not scored properly for completing lap 141. Under ISCARS rules, the field is frozen when a caution is displayed. Any car involved in a spin or accident is able to blend into the field, without losing a lap, if they are able to get the car rolling ahead of the race leader. Had Humphrey been allowed to do so, he would not have lost a lap. At that juncture in the race, only four cars were on the lead lap, so he should have rejoined the field at the tail end of the lead lap. ISCARS improperly placed him behind the lapped cars of Miller and Combs for the remaining laps of the event.
