The race restarted on lap five, with Ambrose leading Kasey Kahne, Joey Logano, Greg Biffle, and Kevin Harvick. Biffle drove his car above Ambrose, and tried to take the lead. However, he was too high and had to give Ambrose the lead. One lap later, Ambrose got very loose coming out of two and Greg Biffle took over the race lead. On lap ten, Josh Wise's engine blew up, bringing out the day's second caution.
The restart came on lap 16, and Biffle led Ambrose, Logano, Kahne, and Kenseth to the green flag. Biffle was able to pull ahead of Ambrose on the restart to hold onto the lead. Biffle was able to hold off Ambrose until the first competition caution came out on lap 26. The field came in to pit for fuel for the first time during the race. Marcos Ambrose got the lead in the pits, and he led the field to the green flag on lap 31. He was followed by Matt Kenseth, Joey Logano, Mark Martin, and Kyle Busch. Ambrose was able to stay in the lead until lap 32, when Kenseth was able to get around Ambrose to take the lead. On lap 49, Kenseth and Ambrose ran into some lap traffic, and when Kenseth went around the lapped car on the outside, Ambrose dove to the inside and took the lead. The second competition caution came out on lap 51. The field came in for pit stops, and Greg Biffle gained the lead.

On lap 87, Dale Jr. led Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer, Jeff Gordon, and Greg Biffle to the green flag. When the cars got to Turn 1, Stewart drove the car into the corner and was able to take the lead away from Earnhardt. On lap 104, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was able to get back up to Stewart and take the lead away from the Office Depot Chevrolet. On lap 114, Brad Keselowski pitted for a blistered right-rear tire. Two laps later, the rest of the field began to come in to start a round of green flag pit stops. On lap 121, while Juan Pablo Montoya was the leader, Kurt Busch spun to bring out another caution.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. led Jeff Gordon, Juan Pablo Montoya, Clint Bowyer, and Tony Stewart to the green flag on lap 133. For second straight restart, the caution came out on the same lap as the green flag, this time for a spin by Denny Hamlin. Hamlin got spun around by Ryan Newman, and he spun and hit the grass, which ripped the left side off the car. As he was driving down pit road, the car erupted in flames, and he quickly came to a stop, got out of the car, and got the fire extinguished.
