NASCAR Cup Series event rained out at Charlotte

Jimmie Johnson finished second, but was later disqualified after failing post-race inspection. The five additional laps - another 7.5 miles - pushed the longest event on the NASCAR calendar into a true Memorial Day finale. He showed his displeasure by flipping Busch the bird.

When the race does go green, Hendrick Motorsports teammates William Byron and Alex Bowman will roll off from the front row. Keselowski (+1000) opted to take a chance by staying on the track.

"That's got to be a joke, " Elliott said over his radio.

"I was a lap-and-a-half away from winning the 600, " Elliott said.

"I've wanted this race for so long", Keselowski tweeted.

Postponing, delaying and shortening races at both Darlington Raceway last week and Charlotte Motor Speedway this week, she has scored another victory.

Nascar has also suspended three critical members of Denny Hamlin's crew, including his crew chief and vehicle chief, after a required piece of equipment fell off the #11 auto during Sunday's race at Charlotte. However, the result still worked out well for Penske, who should have been celebrating Memorial Day with his family on Monday, but was instead at trackside to celebrate Keselowski's win.

"We are in discussions", Penske told The Associated Press on Monday. With the NASCAR series finally back underway, sports punters interested in once again placing bets on their favourite drivers or the outcome of the race will find bookmakers such as Bet365 offering lucrative sign-up packages. But the 10-week shutdown has apparently helped Keselowski increase his value. And, Kyle Larson's desirability was hurt when he was sacked by Chip Ganassi for using a racial slur. "I know there are fans that wish they could be in the stands".

Brad Keselowski acknowledged winning never hurts, but he still doesn't have news about his future beyond this season.

"I have a very good team right now", said Keselowski. This event was its third Cup race in seven days - all without spectators - and limited media access. We've got a race win at a major on a team that's really just starting to click together.
