Jones is coming off a fourth-place finish last week at Texas and has finished in the top 11 five times in seven Cup races this season.

"It's not going to remain a bottom-feeder race", Larson said. "I kinda saw them turning low and I thought that shirt was definitely going to be okay and then they awakened up and acquired us".

Larson seems comfortable with his car's performance so far.

Larson said he's "feeling good about it" and expects the leaders to need to use the upper groove more Monday.

The app´s creator Pavel Durov banned lawyers representing Telegram from attending the court hearing so as not to legitimise it. Telegram's service has faced temporary blocks in Iran - over content being spread on the platform that the regime dislikes.

The race is scheduled to resume at 1 p.m. EDT on lap 205 in Stage 2 with Kyle Larson leading. Rain in the morning and colder with a high of only 41.

If the race is postponed, it will be run on Monday. Kyle Busch dropped back through the field due to handling issues. Kurt Busch was set to start alongside his brother in P2 but wrecked during practice and will now have to start in the rear with a backup auto.

Brad Keselowski led once for 13 laps to win Stage 1, vaulting to the front when Blaney, his Team Penske teammate, crashed out. A collision involving the cars of Trevor Bayne and Chris Buescher obstructed the track, collecting Jamie McMurray, Harrison Rhodes and Blaney, who retired in 35th place with heavy front-end damage.

"That was different", he said with a laugh. "I know we had some conversations like that, I don't know if he'll admit to that totally, but it was definitely a wake-up call".

Fine, cool and windy weather forecast this weekend
On the northern side, heavy snow will continue from Wisconsin to MI , with icy conditions reaching all the way to New England. Cold and damp weather is expected throughout the day, with the temperatures reaching a high of only about 45, DiSpigna said.

The Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway has begun and it took only three laps before the first wreck.

His automobile had been taken supporting the wall, ending his afternoon. He was not hurt, but was forced to turn to a backup vehicle for the remainder of the weekend.

Larson led 74 laps before the race was postponed, but it was an eventful day between delays. In the past five years Carl Edwards has won three races at short tracks, while Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano, and Kurt Busch all have two wins apiece. Darrell Wallace Jr., who also decided to make a stop under the caution, was penalized during the stops for speeding on pit road.

A nine-car accident on lap four of the 500-lap event eliminated Chase Elliott from contention.
