DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Daytona 500 has resumed after a rain delay of 6 hours, 22 minutes. There are 162 laps left in the 200-lap race.

Kyle Busch was atop the leaderboard when the race was red-flagged. Martin Truex Jr. was the first driver out when his car blew an engine on lap 30. Austin Dillon sat on the pole in the famed No. 3 and was 10th.

The race needed to hit 100 laps (halfway) to become official. There are 405 miles left.

Air Titan, the system designed to reduce track drying time, provided the only action on the track.
