Post-race technical inspection following Monday’s rain-shortened NASCAR Cup Series YellaWood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway has been completed.

Bubba Wallace’s race-winning No. 23 23XI Racing Toyota Camry has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Wallace and his team the official winners of the race.

This marks Wallace’s first-career NASCAR Cup Series win, and it comes in his 143rd NASCAR Cup Series start. Wallace officially becomes the second African American race winner in NASCAR Cup Series history and the first since Wendell Scott in December of 1963.

Wallace led the final five laps of Monday’s race.

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