The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series M&M’s Fan Appreciation 400 is finally done and dusted. The much-awaited race of the season started at 3:00 pm ET and lasted for 3 hours, 15 minutes, and 49 seconds. It took place at Pocono Raceway, with a total of 36 entries.

Driving the #11 Toyota Camry Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag first on Sunday, followed by his teammate Kyle Busch in the runner-up position. A few hours later, however, both Joe Gibbs Racing drivers failed post-race inspections, resulting in NASCAR disqualifying both the cars from Sunday’s race.

As a result, Chase Elliott, who finished P3, was declared the official winner of Sunday’s M&M’s Fan Appreciation 400.

The unexpected win marked the Georgia native's 17th victory of his NASCAR Cup Series career. He has now won his fourth race of the season, which makes him the driver with the most wins this year and brings him another step closer to the top of the points table standings.

After the disqualifications, Tyler Reddick moved into second place, followed by Daniel Suarez (third), Christopher Bell (fourth), and Kyle Larson (fifth) completing the top five.

UPDATE: The No. 18 car was disqualified in post-race inspection. @KyleBusch is now credited with a 36th-place finish.

Hamlin, who started from the pole, led 21 of 160 laps while his teammate Busch started from the front row and led a race-high 63 laps. Both drivers were demoted to the last two spots on the 36-car field.
