MARTINSVILLE, VA – After 91 laps of the Cook Out 250, a persistent rain storm combined with lightning forced NASCAR to postpone the remainder of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash event. The Cook Out 250 will continue at 12:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 11.

Brandon Jones leads Josh Berry with 34 laps remaining in Stage 2. He took the lead shortly before the rain first fell. Jones and Berry battled for the lead for several laps.

The first Stage of the Cook Out 250 at Martinsville Speedway ended under caution as Riley Herbst and Alex Labbe spun in turns one and two. Noah Gragson won the Stage with Austin Cindric in second.

Harrison Burton currently leads the Dash 4 Cash competitors in seventh as they chase the $100,000 bonus. Gragson sits ninth with Justin Allgaier in 10th.

Dash 4 Cash competitor AJ Allmendinger is a lap down in 39th after cutting a tire early in the race. Additional issues have forced his Kaulig Racing team to go under the hood of his No. 16 Chevrolet Camaro SS under caution.

The caution for rain and the ensuing red flag is the sixth caution in 91 laps. Four cautions have been for incidents, three of which were single car spins. There have been six lead changes and six different leaders.

Timmy Hill will be the free pass when the race resumes.
