Add in that the 21-year-old had the top 10-lap average in the first practice Saturday and there are the makings of a first career Cup win.

Rain forced stoppages at Laps 49 and 165 before organizers chose to pull drivers off the track for good at Lap 204. Kyle Larson is the leader.

Crews cover the cars as rain drops Within a NASCAR Cup Series Car race, Sunday, April 15, 2018, at Bristol, Tenn.

On-track action is scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m. Monday, with TV coverage on FOX. Logano was fifth previous year in this race and had back-to-back wins in the summer in 2014 and 2015. In all, 214 of the 500 laps have been complete. Brad Keselowski and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. round out the other top spots of the starting lineup for Sunday.

"Bristol is my favorite track and I always get excited to come here, so really looking forward to the weekend", said Larson, who drives Chip Ganassi Racing's No. 42 McDonald's Camaro ZL1. I used to have my go-cart here and now I get to go on stage and talk to Dr.

In an ongoing battle with Mother Nature, NASCAR lost ... again. When the race was halted Elliott was 22 laps down in 33rd.

Heavy rain remains in the forecast all day. Last week, he ran into some issues and fell behind the cars on the lead lap, but still managed to work all the way back up to second place.

Chris Buescher Michael McDowell, Harrison Rhodes and also Ross Chastain are also outside of this race.

Kurt Busch is the latest driver going to the rear of the field for the start of the Food City 500 at Bristol.

"It's hard to get a rhythm with all the rain and stuff and then getting out of your auto and getting back in". "We need to get the weather out of here if we can". "We'll keep on battling and see what happens". "People not clear and it took us out".

Larson seemed to have found his groove on the track before the third and final red flag came out.

Lirot said he will file a motion as soon as Thursday asking Gievers to lift the stay. He denied that NY is behind other states.

The first 204 laps have been intense to say the least.

However, Kyle Busch boasts the most top-two finishes with five.

The start of the race was delayed about 30 minutes and brought out four red flags (three for weather).

There was an early wreck on the third lap. Sure, Chase Elliott may have earned his second L1 penalty of the season, but it wasn't enough to nudge other main topics off the front pages. Chastain's is the only auto that had to go behind the wall. His 54 laps led at Phoenix (where he finished 18th) are his only laps out front so far this year. Logano has the most top fives (eight), followed by Kyle Busch (seven).

It proved accurate as the event at the half-mile Tennessee track was paused three times due to rain.

As Menard and Logano raced side-by-side, Larson pulled out to a lead of almost five seconds. The forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain Sunday. Darrell Wallace Jr., who also decided to make a stop under the caution, was penalized during the stops for speeding on pit road.

Last August at BMS, Jones used some of that experience to lead 260 laps in the Night Race before losing to his current JGR teammate and mentor Kyle Busch.

"It's good to come back to a place where your team is fast, where you're comfortable and the vehicle unloads good", Jones said.

Bristol, TN- Friday afternoon, Kyle Busch in the No. 18 Skittles Toyota won his 2nd pole of the season and his 29th overall of his career.

The two NASCAR drivers from Knoxville returned home to meet fans at the Food City Family Race Night ahead of the Food City 500 in Bristol this weekend.

If the race is postponed, it will be run on Monday.
