The Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL course and mother nature combined for an interesting elimination race. NASCAR rarely races in the rain except on road course, and today was that exception to the exception that would see the red flag for rain. As the drivers learned to race the tricky road course on the infield of Charlotte Motor Speedway the rain began to fall. On lap 30 the monsoon amount of rain would have the front splitter acting like a surfboard, forcing NASCAR to display the red flag until conditions improved.

AJ Allmendinger would survive the chaos after a caution flag forced the race into overtime to pick up the victory in the Drive for the Cure 250

“I don’t know what we just witnessed,” Allmendinger said with a smile. “I was complaining the whole race. Crazy. The 98 Chase Briscoe was doing a fantastic job. I didn’t really have anything for him after a couple laps but I knew that final restart I was going to do everything I could.”
