Post-race technical inspection following Wednesday’s NASCAR Cup Series Autotrader EchoPark 500 at Texas Motor Speedway has been completed.

Kyle Busch’s race-winning No. 18 Toyota Camry has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Busch the official winner of the race.

The only issues discovered in post-race inspection were one unsecured lug nut from Ryan Newman’s No. 6 car, Ryan Blaney’s No. 12 car and Clint Bowyer’s No. 14 car. These infractions will result in a monetary fine for their crew chiefs.

No other issues were discovered in post-race inspection. As such, all results and standings are considered official.
