Post-race technical inspection following Saturday night’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco Uniforms 302 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has been completed.

Josh Berry’s race-winning JR Motorsports No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Berry and his team the official winners of the race.

This marks Berry’s second win in 20 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts in 2021. The win came in relief of the injured Michael Annett. Berry led a total of 38 laps en route to the victory.

Berry won by a victory margin of 4.398-seconds.

Justin Allgaier, Berry’s JR Motorsports teammate, was the highest finishing Playoff contender in second place. This second-place finish marks the sixth-consecutive finish of sixth or better for Allgaier. Additionally, it’s been 14-straight finishes of 12th-or-better for Allgaier as well.

Noah Gragson came home in third to make it a 1-2-3 finish for JR Motorsports. This is the first-ever 1-2-3 finish for the organization owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Berry’s No. 1 car did have one unsecured lug nut in post-race tech, which will result in a monetary fine for his crew chief.

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