You know you’ve got to be pretty happy with your car when you’re pre-planning on smiling after the race:

After the race, Kyle Busch apologized for his awful driving.

10:30 p.m. Kyle Busch just drastically spins out Chase Elliott. This one was bad, and the reaction was deserved.

8:43 p.m. And will you look at that: Clint Bowyer wins Stage 1! On the track in his career where he has the worst average finishing position (21.27), he picks up a win. And with his fun-loving personality, he’d be a popular winner if he gets it.

8:06 p.m. We don’t have any video yet, but John H Nemechek is in the wall with heavy damage. And that’s a rough break for him after a great run on Sunday, he started 34th and finished ninth, a great run for a rookie.

NASCAR is back in action at Darlington Raceway for a second Cup Series race in four days. NASCAR returned from its pandemic suspension with Saturday’s Real Heroes 400, and is back on Wednesday with the Toyota 500.

The race got underway at 6 p.m. ET on FS1, and we will be offering updates to get you to the finishing order. We’ll provide updates with who wrecks out, who wins the race, and the final order of results when the checkered flag is waved.

Ryan Preece opened the race in pole position, with Ty Dillon next to him on the front row. The starting order was determined based on results from Saturday. The first 20 positions were the inverse of the finishing order for the top 20 racers at the Real Heroes 400. The remaining positions were in order of finish at that race.

Whether you’re able to enjoy the race on FS1 or not, follow along here as we update wrecks and finishing order!
