The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway in Delaware was delayed 22 minutes this afternoon when a red flag came out after debris from a pothole damaged the car of driver Jamie McMurray.
NASCAR brought all the cars to pit road to allow repairs to the one-mile track. Crews were not allowed to work on cars during the delay, including McMurray's team, which appealed the ruling and lost.
The 400-lap race was stopped on Lap 161 at 2:50 p.m. local time. It resumed under caution at 3:12 p.m.
Kevin Harvick was leading at the time of the caution, but he had a tire problem and pitted on Lap 166, relinquishing the lead to Matt Kenseth. Jimmie Johnson took the lead 12 laps later as the race approaches the halfway point.
Earlier in the race, Kyle Busch lost his bid for a triple victory this weekend. The winning driver in the Truck Series race on Friday and the second-tier Nationwide Series race on Saturday, crashed his car into the wall on Lap 124 and headed to the garage.
