The No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Denny Hamlin passed post-race technical inspection Wednesday after winning the Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway.
Hamlin’s race-winning car was found to be compliant with the 2020 NASCAR Rule Book after the rain-shortened event at the 1.366-mile track.

With post-race teardown complete, the race results are official.
This is the second year of a post-race process to bring a more timely approach to inspection for all three NASCAR national series. Competition officials announced before the 2019 season thorough post-race inspections would take place shortly after the checkered flag at the track instead of midweek at the NASCAR Research & Development Center. Those inspections come with a stiffer deterrence structure that includes disqualification for significant rules infractions.
NASCAR will still inspect cars at the R&D Center as needed to monitor trends and parts compliance.
