Chase Elliott flips off Kyle Busch after late spin — NASCAR at Darlington

Chase Elliott flips off Kyle Busch after late spin — NASCAR at Darlington”

The Xfinity Series will compete at Darlington at noon ET Thursday (Fox Sports 1), a race that was postponed from Tuesday night, also due to persistent heavy rain. Elliott went spinning across the track and made hard contact into the pit wall, ending his race with under 30 laps to go. After several minutes, NASCAR announced the decision to end it. I've got too many friends over there on that team to do anything like that on objective.

Drivers had to travel to the track alone, pass through a health screening and then isolate before the race. You can move around. "You can do different things to make (the car) handle". I don't think he intentionally wrecked us but you just get exhausted of coming out on the wrong end of those deals too often.

Busch and Elliott were battling for the second position behind Denny Hamlin. Busch probably also was glad the rains came because just prior to the storm, he was involved in an incident with Hendrick Motorsports' Chase Elliott. The No. 9 vehicle was sent sliding along the frontstretch and into the inside retaining wall.

They were running second and third behind Hamlin at the time.

After emerging from the race vehicle, Busch spoke with Elliott's crew chief Alan Gustafson.

"Misjudged it, made a mistake and clipped the 9 there and spun him into the wall", Busch said.

Busch continued: "They're upset, they're mad. I'm not just going to fix it and we'll have ice cream tomorrow", an irritated Busch said when pressed by Matt Yocum on whether Gustafson believed Busch's explanation.

Kevin Harvick won Sunday at Darlington for the 50th win of his career.

Brad Keselowski of Team Penske was fourth while JGR's Erik Jones was fifth.

That date also is significant because it marked the last time NASCAR has hosted a Cup race on a Wednesday.

The event is the second at Darlington Raceway in four days after racing was suspended March 13 because of the coronavirus pandemic. NASCAR made its return Sunday at Darlington. The next Cup Series event is the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

In recent weeks, the state governments in North and SC have loosened their stay-at-home orders which allowed NASCAR to schedule several race events at Darlington and Charlotte Motor Speedway over the next two weeks but without fans in attendance.

Bowyer went on to win Stage 2, as well.

That streak will be broken today at 6 p.m. on Fox Sports 1 when stock vehicle racing's elite series competes in the Toyota 500 at Darlington. However, rain that fell in the afternoon forced a two-hour delay of the start.
