If the race is postponed, it will be held Monday.

"I think he really saw how good he could be and he could be at more than just one or two race tracks that he's really good at".

Rain forced stoppages at Laps 49 and 165 before organizers made a decision to pull drivers off the track for good at Lap 204. The race is scheduled to restart on lap 206 at 1 p.m. EDT Monday afternoon.

Kyle Larson is the leader.

The completion of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway will take place on Monday after officials postponed the race after the third red flag of the day because of rain. In all, 214 of the 500 laps have been complete.

Before the postponement, Larson led 74 laps and appeared to be cruising to the 250 lap mark where the race would become official.

Denny Hamlin, Paul Menard, pole victor Kyle Busch and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. rounded out the top five when the race was postponed.

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - NASCAR is hoping the Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway will be run on Sunday despite a wet forecast.


In an ongoing battle with Mother Nature, NASCAR lost ... again. NASCAR is attempting to dry the track after heavy rain subsided.

McDowell only managed a handful more laps before retiring, and Truex was lucky to continue given Ross Chastain, who had rear-ended his Toyota during said accident, was forced to retire immediately. But looming in fourth place will be Kyle Busch who started the day from the pole and was winding his way thru the field.

"It's not going to remain a bottom-feeder race", Larson said. "We both kind of laid it all on the line, here's where we both need to get better". His Penske Racing teammate, Brad Keselowski, won Stage 1. The No. 12 Ford had nowhere to go and was swept up in the wreck.

His vehicle was taken behind the wall, ending his day.

"We didn't lead any laps on intermediate [tracks] past year", Gayle said. "People not clear and it took us out".

Until the crimson flag came, Larson did actually have found his groove on the trail.

Ryan Blaney has led 59 of the first 76 laps as NASCAR tries to beat the rain. It is scheduled to be completed on Monday - weather permitting.
