CONCORD, N.C. — The Coca-Cola 600 has resumed after a 1-hour, 39-minute delay for weather.

The race went back to green at 9:49 p.m. on Lap 153.

Martin Truex Jr., who won this race last year, is leading the race, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Ryan Blaney, Kurt Busch, Jamie McMurray, Austin Dillon and Denny Hamlin.
