UPDATE 11:08 p.m.: And after so much bad luck and near misses, Chase Elliott finally gets over the line and takes the checkered flag for the first time in 2020. He’s the sixth driver to win a race this season, and after what happened in the Coca-Cola 600 it was well deserved. Here’s your Top 10 finishers:

UPDATE 10:22 p.m.: Timmy Hill hits the wall, and so most of the leaders decide to pit under caution with 62 to go. Kevin Harvick comes out first, ahead of Denny Hamlin and Ryan Blaney. And that might be enough tire and fuel to get everyone home from here.

UPDATE 10:08 p.m.: Alex Bowman picks up the win for Stage 2, which gives him more stage wins than anyone so far this season.

UPDATE 9:43 p.m.: Quinn Houff gets into the wall, and the caution flag comes out. Looks like he’ll get back on the track however.

UPDATE: 9:36 p.m.: Joey Logano picked up the stage win in the opener, and goes to first place in the playoff points race.

UPDATE 9:06 p.m.: Engines about to start back up

UPDATE 7:53 p.m.: Well we got through 30 laps, but that’s all for now.

NASCAR has struggled with some rain issues in Charlotte, and it has resulted in one more delay. Wednesday’s Alsco Uniforms 500 has been postponed until Thursday evening due to the weather. The Cup Series race will run at 7 p.m. ET on FS1.

The drivers were set to head to Bristol after Wednesday’s race, but will be delayed a day to the weather. That is now resulting in the Cheddar’s 300 Xfinity Series race moving from Saturday afternoon to Monday evening. It was scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and now will run at 7 p.m. on Monday on FS1.

The rest of NASCAR’s upcoming schedule remains intact. The Cup Series is set to run 266 miles at Bristol this coming Sunday. Race order determination is not quite clear at this point. With a 3:30 p.m. start time, it likely means there will be no qualifying heats like we saw for the Coca-Cola 600 this past Sunday.
