Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Verizon 200 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course has been completed.

AJ Allmendinger’s race-winning No. 16 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet Camaro has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Allmendinger and his team the official winners of the race.

This is officially Allmendinger’s second-career NASCAR Cup Series win and it is the first-ever NCS victory for Kaulig Racing in their seventh start in the series.

Ryan Blaney’s No. 12 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.
