Chase Elliott salvaged a crummy day for Hendrick Motorsports and interrupted a potential Toyota rout by winning the rain-drenched race at Nashville Superspeedway on Sunday night. Elliott recovered from an early issue that dropped him deep into the field to take the lead with 38 laps remaining and hold off three Joe Gibbs Racing drivers for his second Cup victory of the season. It took NASCAR’s most popular driver nearly seven hours and a late four-lap shootout to get to victory lane. NASCAR moved the start up by 12 minutes because of looming bad weather, then sat through an hour-long stoppage for lightning in the area, followed by a later rain delay that stretched a tick past two hours. Kurt Busch was second.

Legislation that would have authorized sports betting across all of North Carolina has fallen apart in the state's General Assembly. The House late Wednesday narrowly rejected a measure that would have adjusted how betting operators would be taxed and state proceeds would be distributed. An unusual coalition of social conservatives and liberal Democrats halted the effort issuing warnings about the dangers of gambling. A House lawmaker who shepherded the two betting bills said the idea is still alive because one of the measures passed by a one-vote margin. But the General Assembly work session is likely to end late next week, leaving little time for retooling the legislation.

Daniel Suárez became the first Mexican-born driver to win a NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday on Sonoma Raceway. The 30-year-old Mexican driver held off Chris Buescher to claim his first victory in his 195th career start. He also drove his Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet to the third Cup Series victory for this 2-year-old team co-owned by former driver Justin Marks and music star Pitbull. Suárez got past Buescher and took charge on this hilly road course in Northern California wine country early in the final stage, and he persevered through a pit stop and a caution to emerge with his lead intact with 23 laps to go.

Joey Logano jockeyed for the lead with Kyle Busch in overtime, got around him for good just before the white flag flew and cruised to the victory Sunday in the NASCAR Cup Series debut at World Wide Technology Raceway. Logano made it a banner day for Team Penske, which won the IndyCar race with Will Power earlier in the day in Detroit. Kurt Busch finished second with Logano’s teammate, Ryan Blaney, finishing fourth and Aric Almirola in fifth.
