NASCAR is looking toward a potential restart at 4:10PM ET of the NASCAR Cup Series Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

The sanctioning body has issued an alert for drivers to be at their cars at 3:50 PM ET.

The race will continue to be broadcast on CNBC and it will be available to be streamed on peacock and the NBC Sports app.

There are 21 laps remaining in the regular-season finale event and Austin Dillon, who is winless this season and currently sits outside the Playoff cutline, is scored as the race leader.

Dillon, like magic, avoided carnage that ensued when a downpour of rain hit Turn 1 as the field, led by Denny Hamlin and Daniel Suarez, came around. The wet race track sent the majority of the field crashing.

Kevin Harvick, who is currently scored second, will reportedly be done for the day due to damage he sustained in the 18-car crash that happened to bring out the caution, which turned into a red flag for weather.

If Harvick does indeed go to the garage, here will be the lineup at the time of the restart of the race:

  1. Austin Dillon
  2. Landon Cassill
  3. Cody Ware
  4. Austin Cindric
  5. Kyle Busch
