Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Drydene 400 at Dover International Speedway has been completed.

Alex Bowman’s race-winning No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro has passed. As a result, Bowman has been named the official winner of the race. Bowman, who led 98 laps on the day, is now a two-time winner in 2021. Sunday’s race also marked Bowman’s fourth win of his NCS career.

Tyler Reddick’s No. 8 car, Chris Buescher’s No. 17 car, William Byron’s No. 24 car and Ryan Preece’s No. 37 car each had one unsecured lug nut, which will result in monetary fines for their crew chiefs.

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