All clear in Kentucky post-race inspection

The race-winning Chip Ganassi Racing No. 1 Chevrolet has passed post-race inspection at Kentucky Speedway with no issues, affirming Kurt Busch’s first victory of the year in the Monster Energy Series.

The No. 1 Chevy was found to be compliant with the 2019 NASCAR Rule Book after Saturday’s Quaker State 400. No other issues were reported from technical inspection or the post-race lug-nut check.

NASCAR will still inspect cars and parts for technology trends at the R&D Center as needed, but the more comprehensive at-track inspection will take priority. Saturday, a NASCAR spokesperson said the Roush Fenway Racing No. 6 Ford driven by ninth-finishing Ryan Newman would make the R&D trip this week.
