Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway has been completed.

Alex Bowman’s race-winning No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Ally Chevrolet Camaro has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared him the official winner of the race. This marks Bowman’s first win of 2021 and the third of his NASCAR Cup Series career.

William Byron’s No. 24 car and Cody Ware’s No. 51 car each 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.
