The victory marks the eighth in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Nemechek, six of which have come this season in the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, with triumphs at Auto Club, Martinsville, Atlanta, Loudon, Michigan, and now Kansas.

Nemechek’s triumph also marks the 200th in the Xfinity Series for manufacturer Toyota Racing Development, which has been aligned with juggernaut organization Joe Gibbs Racing since 2008.

Sheldon Creed, No. 2 Chevrolet, had two lug nuts loose, which will result in a $10,000 fine and a one-race suspension for Jeff Stankewicz, while Austin Hill and Jeb Burton each had one loose lug nut, which will result in a $5,000 fine to Andy Street and Shane Whitbeck.

There were no major issues discovered during inspection on Saturday, meaning the results and standings distributed by NASCAR are now deemed official. Brandon Jones, Sheldon Creed, Parker Kligerman, and Austin Hill will retain their positions inside the top five.
