Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway has been completed. Brad Keselowski’s race-winning No. 2 Ford Mustang has passed.
As a result, NASCAR has declared Keselowski as the official winner of the race.
Jimmie Johnson’s second-place No. 48 Chevrolet Camaro did not pass and he has been disqualified. According to NASCAR, Johnson’s car failed in the rear alignment.
Johnson will be credited with a 40th-place finish and has been stripped of Stage Points that he accumulated throughout the race.
Johnson’s crew chief Cliff Daniels posted a statement on the failure via Twitter Sunday night/Monday morning:
Disappointed about our post-race OSS. We think something must've broken but won't know until we get it back to the shop tomorrow and can diagnose. Tough news after a strong night. This team is getting stronger We are focused forward. We’ll be back Wednesday with another great car
