Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway has been completed.

Martin Truex Jr.’s race-winning No. 19 Bass Pro Shops Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camry has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Truex the official winner of the race. Truex is now the only two-time winner in the NASCAR Cup Series so far this season, and he now has 29 wins in his NCS career.

Kyle Larson’s No. 5 car, Chase Briscoe’s No. 14 car and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s No. 47 car all had one unsecured lug nut, which will result in a monetary fine for their crew chiefs.

No other issues were discovered in post-race inspection, which means all results and standings are now considered official.
