NASCAR Atlanta Update: Race Restarts With 106 Laps To Go, But Rain Arrives Again

The potential Cinderella story for JJ Yeley ended when NASCAR lifted a 24-minute red flag and went back to green-flag racing, but it only lasted two laps before the heavy mist/light rain returned.

As NASCAR dried the track and prepared to go back to green, Yeley and second-place Landon Cassill pitted and gave the lead back to Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards.

The green flag waved and Kenseth jumped out to the lead, but after a lap he and other drivers immediately began telling their teams it was raining and NASCAR needed to call a caution.

Kenseth got the caution he wanted, and the yellow flag came back out. So did the jet dryers.

Top 10 as of the latest caution for rain at lap 221 (out of 325 laps):

  1. Matt Kenseth
  2. Carl Edwards
  3. Kevin Harvick
  4. Jimmie Johnson
  5. Jeff Gordon
  6. Denny Hamlin
  7. Clint Bowyer
  8. Brad Keselowski
  9. Juan Pablo Montoya
  10. David Ragan
