Post-race technical inspection following Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Production Alliance Group 300 at Auto Club Speedway has been completed.

Cole Custer’s race-winning No. 07 SS Green Light Racing Ford Mustang has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Custer and his team the official winners of the race.

This is Custer’s 10th-career NASCAR Xfinity Series victory, and his first of the 2022 season. This is the first-ever race win for SS Green Light Racing.

Custer, 24, led a race-high 80 laps, in what turned out to be a 165-lap race thanks to three overtime finish attempts.

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

Noah Gragson finished the race in second in the No. 9 JR Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro, while Trevor Bayne, making his first NXS start since 2016, came home third in the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 entry.

Josh Berry finished an impressive fourth and Anthony Alfredo utilized tire strategy to work his way to a fifth-place finish on Saturday.
