Post-race technical inspection following Saturday’s NASCAR Cup Series Pocono Organics CBD 325 has been completed.
Alex Bowman’s race-winning No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Bowman and his team the official winners of the race. This is Bowman’s third win of the 2021 season and it’s his fifth-career NASCAR Cup Series win.
Kyle Busch’s No. 18 car, Bubba Wallace’s No. 23 car, Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 car and Ryan Blaney’s No. 12 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.
Due to the finishing order, Chris Buescher will start on pole in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Pocono. The starting lineup for that race will be an inversion of the top-20 from Saturday’s finishing order. Drivers that finished in positions 21-38 will assume their finishing position on Saturday as their starting position on Sunday.
Teams that go to a backup car will have to start in the rear, as the double header is meant to be run with one car all weekend.
As of now Anthony Alfredo, Cole Custer, Kyle Larson, Corey LaJoie, Ryan Newman, Ryan Preece will all move to backup cars.
