Weather forces Monday finish at NASCAR's Bristol race

Weather forces Monday finish at NASCAR's Bristol race

Kyle Busch won his second consecutive race after performing the bump-and-run on Kyle Larson with five laps remaining in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"I feel like we were actually better than 11th", said Suarez (pictured at left with race victor Kyle Busch), who also led five laps when he stayed out during one caution period. There are only a handful of drivers who have a history of moving up through the field well with only five drivers posting a +6 number or better in the last four races here.

Kyle Busch has the pole and is looking for his second straight Cup Series victory.

Larson led 74 of the 204 laps that have been completed and said he believes his vehicle will handle better despite the delay.

Larson led 67 of the 204 laps completed on Sunday and said he was optimistic about his chances whenever the race resumed. The seven-time NASCAR champion saw his career-long winless streak reach 31 races but earned his first top five of the season and first since Dover in October.

NASCAR is hoping the Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway will be run on Sunday despite a wet forecast. It was the quite the experience, truly awesome to speed around Bristol Motor Speedway with a true NASCAR legend. That means however that there are still over 400 laps run under green.

Ricciardo: "Awesome" win worth 50 races like Bahrain
Renault's Nico Hulkenberg finished sixth for Renault, ahead of Alonso whose aggressive overtaking move on Vettel was "noted" by stewards.

A Keselowski spin with 30 laps remaining allowed Busch - who at the time was doing everything he could do to keep his vehicle stable with the worn tires - to pit for tires, setting up his late charge for the victory Monday afternoon.

Kyle Busch: He battled for the lead with Larson, Keselowski, Bubba Wallace, and a handful of others at various points Monday, and although his auto may not have been best, he was.

Up until the final 10 minutes of final practice, the weekend had gone almost perfectly for Kurt Busch, who was set to be part of a 1-2 start with his pole-winning brother for the third time. "I thought I could get going, but I never really did".

"We have it rolling in the right direction", Johnson said.

Ryan Newman also was competitive, and Bubba Wallace led the first Cup Series laps of his career in his Richard Petty Motorsports Chevy. Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Ford, 128.253 5. Keselowski hit the wall with 30 laps left, bringing out the final caution. He also won last weekend at Texas. Martin Truex Jr., who qualified 26th, was second fastest in Saturday's first practice at 128.952 miles per hour.

White said earlier in the day if the race is delayed until Monday he will still be there ready to cheer on his favorite driver. He is clearly capable of getting the job done at "The Last Great Colosseum". "We've just got to sort out all the parts and pieces to put on it".
