Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway has been completed.

Kevin Harvick’s race-winning No. 4 Mobil 1 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford Mustang has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Harvick and his team the official winners of the race. This marks Harvick’s second-consecutive NASCAR Cup Series win and it’s the 60th win in 778 NASCAR Cup Series starts.

Additionally, this victory is the fourth triumph of the 46-year old driver’s career at the 0.750-mile Richmond Raceway in NCS competition.

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

Christopher Bell, who rallied in the closing laps, was the official runner-up finisher of the race. Chris Buescher, Denny Hamlin and Chase Elliott rounded out the top-five finishers.

Buescher’s No. 17 RFK Racing Ford Mustang and Bubba Wallace’s No. 23 23XI Racing Toyota Camry were the two random cars selected for further evaluation at the NASCAR R&D Center. If any penalties come from the inspections, they will be announced early in the week.
