Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series EchoPark Texas Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas has been completed.

Chase Elliott’s race-winning No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Elliott the official winner of the race. This marks Elliott’s first win of the 2021 season and it is his 12th-career victory in the NASCAR Cup Series.

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