Brickyard 400 resumes after 1-hour, 47-minute delay

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Brickyard 400 has resumed after a 1-hour, 47-minute rain delay.

The race was just stopped after 12 laps Sunday on Indianapolis Motor Speedway's 2.5-mile oval.

With lightning and heavy rain on the radar, NASCAR officials sent all drivers to pit road shortly before the storms arrived. Speedway officials instructed fans to clear the stands and find cover around the track.

Pole-winner Kyle Busch has led every lap and had taken a lead of more than three seconds before the red flag came out.
