By doing so, Hamlin locks himself into the ‘Round of 12’ in the NASCAR Cup Series post-season and picks up an additional five NASCAR Playoff Points, which will carry over into the next round of the Playoffs.

There were no major issues in post-race inspection, meaning all results and point standings distributed by NASCAR following Saturday’s 500-lap contest at Bristol, are now deemed official.

Kyle Larson, Christopher Bell, Chris Buescher, and Ty Gibbs completed the top five in the event, and with no issues in tech will keep their positions. Michael McDowell, Chase Elliott, Brad Keselowski, William Byron, and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. rounded out the top-10.
