Post-race technical inspection following Saturday night’s NASCAR Cup Series Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway has been completed.
Chris Buescher’s race-winning No. 17 Fastenal RFK Racing Ford Mustang has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Buescher and his team the official winners of the race.
This marks the second victory of Buescher’s NASCAR Cup Series career and the win comes in his 250th start. Buescher has also eclipsed his career-bests for top-fives (three) and top-10s (nine) in a season.
No issues were detected in post-race inspection, which means all results and standings following Saturday’s race are now considered official.
The No. 4 car, the No. 20 and the No. 24 car will all take a trip to the NASCAR R&D Center for further inspection.
The 12 drivers that will advance to the Round of 12 in the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs are: Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, Ross Chastain, Kyle Larson, William Byron, Denny Hamlin, Christopher Bell, Ryan Blaney, Chase Briscoe, Alex Bowman, Daniel Suarez and Austin Cindric.
