Inspection Complete: Christopher Bell Wins, Brad Keselowski, Fourth-Place Finisher, Disqualified

#6: Brad Keselowski, RFK Racing, Kohler Generators Ford Mustang

The smoke has cleared and inspection is complete in the NASCAR Cup Series garage.

Christopher Bell’s race-winning No. 20 DeWalt Tools Toyota Camry TRD has passed all facets of NASCAR’s post-race inspection process, meaning the sanctioning body has named the Joe Gibbs Racing driver the official winner of the Xfinity 500 at Martinsville.

The victory marks the third of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series campaign for Bell, and the fourth of his NASCAR Cup Series career. More importantly, the win locks him into the ‘Championship Four’, giving him a shot to win the title next weekend at Phoenix.

Sunday’s triumph for Bell is also the 200th win in the NASCAR Cup Series for Joe Gibbs Racing, which has a roster that includes Bell, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, and Martin Truex Jr.

Brad Keselowski, the race’s fourth-place finisher, was disqualified for failing to meet the minimum weight requirements per NASCAR Rule Book Section 14.11.2.

Keselowski will now be credited with a 36th-place finish, and everyone else in the field will be moved up one spot. When it comes to stage results, Keselowski will not receive his stage points, moving everyone behind him up a spot.
