The night race at Bristol ended nearly 24 hours after it was scheduled to start.
What was supposed to be a night race suddenly became a day race again as rain became the dominating story line at NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
The start of the race was delayed an hour from its scheduled start time on Saturday night and then the field would race for less than 50 laps before the rain returned forcing a red flag. After another lengthy delay the field began to roll again, but before the green flag could drop a heavy downpour would follow once again and NASCAR officials made the call to suspend the race until Sunday afternoon. The wet story line would continue into Sunday afternoon delaying the restart of the race nearly four hours until just before 5 PM.
When it was over Denny Hamlin would lead Joe Gibbs Racing with a third-place finish after rebounding from being two-laps down, while Carl Edwards finished sixth and separate accidents left Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch back in 37th and 39th respectively. Read More »

Hamlin merely racing is a testament to his perseverance. Doing so at a high level only adds to the accomplishment. But had he not been able to answer the bell, another Toyota driver would have just taken their turn in victory lane. That’s seemingly how it goes for Toyota, which has seen its two flagship teams, Joe Gibbs Racing and Furniture Row Racing, combine to win 11 of 22 races this season and lead 57 percent of all laps.
