Post-race technical inspection following Sunday night’s NASCAR Cup Series Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway has been completed.

Kyle Busch’s race-winning No. 18 M&M’s Crispy Cookie Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camry has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Busch and his team the official winners of the race.

This is officially Busch’s first win of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season and it marks his 60th-career NCS victory. Busch took the win in dramatic fashion after a last-lap spin by Tyler Reddick and Chase Briscoe, who were battling for the lead.

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

Tyler Reddick officially came home in second, while Joey Logano, Kyle Larson and Ryan Blaney rounded out the top-five finishers.
