Kyle Larson’s race-winning No. 5 Valvoline Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro has passed. As a result, NASCAR has declared Larson and his team the official winners of the race.
This is Larson’s third NASCAR Cup Series win of the 2022 season, and this victory brings the 30-year-old driver to a total of 19 wins for his career. This is the first-career win for the California native at the 1.5-mile Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Larson led an incredible 199 laps of the 267 laps contested in Sunday’s race and in addition to winning the race, Larson also won Stages 1 and 2.
While Larson was eliminated from Playoff contention for the driver’s title at the end of the Round of 12 of the Playoffs, Larson’s No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports team moves on to the Owner Championship 4 with the win on Sunday.
There were no issues detected in post-race tech, which means all results and standings following Sunday’s race are now considered official.
