Racing in Kansas has resumed after wet weather stopped the race RELATED: Live weather updates from Kansas Saturday night's SpongeBob SquarePants 400 (FOX Sports 1, MRN, SiriusXM) at Kansas Speedway was delayed by rain with 98 laps completed but racing resumed after a red flag period of two hours and 16 minutes. Drivers were called back to their cars around 10:30 p.m. ET and engines were re-fired at 10:58 p.m. ET. Shortly thereafter, the green flag waved and racing resumed. The 267-lap, 400 .5-mile race, No. 11 of 36 Sprint Cup Series points events, got underway with a green flag time of 7:36 p.m. ET. However, rain hit the track after the race's third caution on Lap 94 near 8:35 p.m., and after a yellow flag period, NASCAR officials threw the red flag and brought cars down pit road. The Air Titan track-drying system was quickly deployed to get the track race-ready. Polesitter Joey Logano led the opening 29 circuits, but gave way to Kurt Busch for the next 20 laps. Reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick took the point position from there for seven laps. Martin Truex Jr . was then out front for 22 laps. Brad Keselowski , Matt Kenseth and Erik Jones also held the lead briefly as the field cycled through pit stops that ultimately put Truex back out in front. At the time of the delay, the top 10 running order was: Truex, Harvick, Busch, Kasey Kahne , Kyle Larson , Keselowski, Carl Edwards , Kenseth, Jeff Gordon and Jamie McMurray . Logano would have been in the top 10 at the delay but he was hit with a penalty for having his crew go over the wall too soon during his four-tire stop. Jones is making his first career Sprint Cup Series start. He filled in for Denny Hamlin at Bristol Motor Speedway in April after Hamlin suffered neck spasms. Jones is in 11th place. There was a competition caution at Lap 25 to check tire wear on the cars at the 1.5-mile track. Alex Bowman had ignition issues and went to the garage just before the competition caution. In the early moments of the race, Jimmie Johnson nearly spun out, but the six-time champion was able to save it. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this evening's weather forecast for the area calls for a chance of precipitation at 40 percent. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts are possible if thunderstorms occur. Earlier this year, the start of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway was delayed for nearly one hour by rain. That event was eventually run in its entirety with Jimmie Johnson collecting the win. There were also lengthy rain delays last month at Bristol Motor Speedway that twice delayed a race eventually won by Matt Kenseth . Two weeks ago, storms in the Richmond, Virginia area pushed the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway back from Saturday night to Sunday afternoon. --NASCAR.com's Pat DeCola contributed to this report .

Fourth-place finish at Richmond a sign of continued 2015 success Play: NASCAR Fantasy Live RICHMOND, Va. -- Stock-car racing leaves no option for do-overs, and little room for regrets. Jamie McMurray had neither one after coming up short Sunday afternoon behind dominant race-winner Kurt Busch . McMurray made the most of a car better suited to long green-flag stints in the rain-delayed Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway , keeping pace with and making gains on Busch in the later stages of the race. But the timing of three caution flags in the final 50 laps conspired against the Chip Ganassi Racing No. 1 Chevrolet team, offering only short runs of green-flag racing near the end. Though McMurray faded to a fourth-place finish -- behind Kevin Harvick and Jimmie Johnson -- by the checkered flag, he left Richmond without any of the nagging "what-ifs" that sometimes lead to sleepless nights. "I mean, when I look back at our race today, you go home and lay down tonight and you think about everything, I really ‑‑ there's nothing that I could have done any better," said McMurray, who led twice for four laps. "I just didn't have a car that was quick on the short run. I had one that would go at the end. When I look back at those restarts, if I could have gotten ahead of him, I still don't know I could have held him up. I thought as a team, driver, crew chief, we did a really good job today." Though the finish was just his second top-five of the season (the other being a runner-up effort last month in Phoenix), Sunday's race represented another building block for McMurray and new crew chief Matt McCall , serving in just his ninth race atop the pit box for the No. 1 camp. It's also another stride toward ending a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series losing skid that stands at 49 races, dating back to October 2013 at Talladega Superspeedway , site of the circuit's next race. McMurray said the communication between himself and the team has improved, but so have his chances of breaking back into Victory Lane, a step that would push him into the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup playoffs for the first time in his career. "You know, last year I thought was probably my best year in Cup racing, even though we didn't have the wins that we did in 2010," said McMurray, who did cash in with a win in the non-points NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race last May. "I thought consistently we were the best. When we had this crew chief change, I was a little bit nervous about what was going to happen. But Matt has done an exceptional job. Honestly our cars are probably better, are better this year than what they were last year, and he's done a really nice job of calling the races and giving me a really fun car to drive that's fast. “You know, honestly, I look at every week like we'll have a chance to win. The 4 (Harvick) and the 41 (Busch) are extremely quick, but I think we proved today that we have a team and a car capable of, put in the right position, to compete with those guys. I'm really happy with my team." According to McCall, in his first full season as a Sprint Cup crew chief, the feeling is mutual. "It's going great. He's easy to get along with, and that helps," McCall said. "He's the type of person that makes it really easy to communicate. He tells you what's wrong with it and we attempt to fix it. That's the way it's been going. I can't complain. We want to win races and that's what we're coming each week to do. Hope we keep pushing ahead and make that happen. "Fortunately, I feel like every week we roll in with equipment where we should have a legitimate chance to win if we can put all the pieces on the puzzle correctly."
