FORT WORTH, Texas — Post-race technical inspection following Sunday night’s AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway has been completed. Kevin Harvick’s race-winning No. 4 Ford Mustang has passed.
As a result, NASCAR has declared him the official winner of the race.
No disqualification infractions were discovered in post-race tech, which means all results and standings are official. The No. 96 car (driven by Parker Kligerman), the No. 11 car (driven by Denny Hamlin) and the No. 8 car (driven by Daniel Hemric) all had one unsecured lug nut, which will result in a monetary fine.
Kyle Larson’s No. 42 car will go back to the NASCAR R&D Center.
