BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Cars are back on the track at Bristol Motor Speedway, and NASCAR hopes to complete the Cup Series race following yet another 35-minute rain delay.

The race had been set to resume at 1 p.m. after being postponed Sunday. NASCAR aims to complete the entire 500-lap race.

Bubba Wallace now knows what it is like to run up front in a Cup Series race.

Wallace passed Busch, the pole sitter, with 126 laps remaining to lead a Cup race for the first time in his career.

It didn't last long though. Busch passed Wallace a short time later on the half-mile track before a brief yellow flag for rain.
