NASCAR at Darlington live race updates, results, highlights from the Toyota 500

The NASCAR Cup Series finally returned from a two-month hiatus Sunday with the Real Heroes 400 at Darlington Raceway, and the action will continue in Darlington on Wednesday with the Toyota 500.

Kevin Harvick won Sunday’s race on “the track that can’t be tamed” and will start in the middle of the pack in 20th position. Ryan Preece, who finished 20th in the Real Heroes 400, will start on the pole for the Toyota 500.

Any doubts about how NASCAR could operate in an environment without fans because of the COVID-19 pandemic were dispelled Sunday. Teams were still able to get their jobs done while maintaining social distancing procedures and fans were able to enjoy the race from the safety of their homes.

The only thing that might derail Wednesday’s race is the weather; according to weather.com, there is a 90 percent chance of rain in the Darlington, S.C., area Wednesday night.
