Rain delays are interrupting Sunday's NASCAR race at Bristol

Periodic rain in northeastern Tennessee is playing havoc with Sunday's Food City 500 Sprint Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The start of the race was delayed by nearly two hours before it was halted again on Lap 125 of 500 by rain once again.

Rain is forecast into the evening. At least 250 laps have to be completed for the race to be counted as official. If not, the remainder of the race will be completed on Monday.
