ORIGINAL STORY: Friday, May 6, 2022 at 11:32 PM ET:

Post-race technical inspection following Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Dead on Tools 200 at Darlington Raceway has been completed.

John Hunter Nemechek’s race-winning No. 4 Mobil 1 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra has passed. As a result, Nemechek and his team have been named the official winners of the race by NASCAR.

This marks Nemechek’s first NCWTS win of the 2022 season and it’s his 12th-career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory.

The only issue detected in post-race inspection was with the fifth-place finishing No. 88 truck, which was driven by Matt Crafton.

Crafton’s truck measured too low on the front end, which resulted in a disqualification. Crafton, who finished fifth initially, will be credited with a last-place finish.

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

Carson Hocevar scored the runner-up finish, while Grant Enfinger, Ty Majesty and Parker Kligerman rounded out the top-five finishers on the night.
