Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Bluegreen Vacations 500 at ISM Raceway in Phoenix has been completed. Denny Hamlin’s race-winning No. 11 Toyota Camry has passed.
As a result, Hamlin has been declared the official winner of the race by NASCAR.
No disqualification-worthy infractions were found in post-race inspection, and as such all results and standings are officially considered official.
The only issues discovered in post race tech were an unsecured lug nut on Brad Keselowski’s No. 2 car and JJ Yeley’s No. 53 car. These infractions will result in a monetary fine.
The Championship 4 for the season-ending Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway next weekend are: Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch.
