Inspection following Saturday’s ToyotaCare 250 at Richmond Raceway is complete in the NASCAR Xfinity Series garage.

The No. 81 Mobil 1 Toyota GR Supra, driven by race-winning Chandler Smith, has cleared inspection, allowing NASCAR to declare the Joe Gibbs Racing driver as the official winner of the event.

Saturday’s victory is the third in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Smith, and his second in the last three races, both of which have come at racetracks measuring one mile in length or shorter.

No further issues were discovered in post-race technical inspection, meaning that all race results and point standings distributed by NASCAR are now deemed official, with Aric Almirola, Taylor Gray, Corey Heim, and Jesse Love all being credited with top-five finishes. Bubba Pollard, Parker Kligerman, Austin Hill, Sammy Smith, and Cole Custer all received top-10s.

The No. 16 (AJ Allmendinger), No. 19 (Taylor Gray), and No. 26 (Corey Heim) each had a single lug nut loose in the post-race lug check, which will not alter their finishing position, but will result in a monetary fine to their crew chiefs midweek.

Alex Yontz, Seth Chavka, and Kris Bowen will all receive $5,000 fines in NASCAR’s weekly penalty report, which is usually distributed on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
