The Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race is back underway at Daytona International Speedway. Tune in to the race on CNBC.

The race has been red-flagged after 37 laps of the scheduled 100-lap event. Brennan Poole was scored as the race leader as the race resumed.

The race began Friday night but was stopped after just 11 laps due to rain. It remained under red-flag conditions for 16 hours, 15 minutes and 51 seconds. Blake Koch was in the lead when the race was suspended.

The race resumed shortly after Noon ET on Saturday afternoon.

Koch won Stage 1 (30 laps).

Weather could impact the race yet again, so teams are trying to get to the end of Stage 2, which would make the race official if drivers are unable to make it to the full 100 scheduled laps.

The NASCAR Cup Coke Zero 400 is still scheduled to take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. ET tonight.
