Post-race technical inspection following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway has been completed.

Bubba Wallace’s race-winning No. 45 Root Insurance 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 second-career NASCAR Cup Series win, and it’s the second win of the 2022 season for the No. 45 23XI Racing entry (won earlier in the season at Kansas Speedway with Kurt Busch).

With the win, the No. 45 team advances to the Round of 12 of the NASCAR Cup Series Owners Championship Playoffs.

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

Denny Hamlin is the official runner-up finisher, while Christopher Bell, Alex Bowman and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top-five finishers in the race.
