Post-race technical inspection following the NASCAR Cup Series GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway has been completed.

Brad Keselowski’s race-winning No. 2 Team Penske Money Lion Ford Mustang has passed. As a result, Keselowski has been declared the official winner of the race. This is Keselowski’s first win of the 2021 NCS season and his 35th-career victory.

There have now been nine different winners in the opening 10 NASCAR Cup Series races of the 2021 season.

Kyle Busch’s No. 18 car had one unsecured lug nut, which will result in a monetary fine for his crew chief.

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