NASCAR race at Bristol resumes

BRISTOL, Tenn. – The NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway has resumed after a rain delay of 3 hours 18 minutes with Matt Kenseth in the lead.

The start was delayed nearly two hours. NASCAR dried the track in about 45 minutes with its year-old Air Titan drying system, but drivers got in only 124 laps before rain forced a delay again.

The Feb. 23 season-opening Daytona 500 was stopped by rain for almost six hours before resuming for a frantic finish won by Dale Earnhardt Jr. before midnight.

The race is considered official at the halfway point of 250 laps.
