FireKeepers Casino 400 live updates: Race postponed; Tyler Reddick leads

Updated Aug. 6, 2023 8:00 p.m. ET

The NASCAR Cup Series' August schedule continues with the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway, and we'll have you covered with all the action as drivers return to the track Monday in Brooklyn, Michigan.

Tyler Reddick currently leads the race, which began Sunday but was postponed after 74 laps due to rainy weather.

It's the 23rd race of the season, and the stakes are high with playoffs right around the corner. Christopher Bell, who checked in at No. 6 in our latest NASCAR power rankings, began in the top spot — his second pole in the past four races.

You can find a full list of winners so far this year, as well as the season's remaining schedule here.

Here are the top moments!


After a short weather delay, things got underway in Michigan!

Follow the leader

Ross Chastain led the opening six laps, but Martin Truex Jr. was pressuring him right out of the gate for the top spot.

Elsewhere, Kyle Busch was the first car out of the race early after going for an unexpected spin that left him with heavy damage.

Double trouble

Chase Elliott was the next driver to have his day cut short after losing control and crashing in the first stage.

That brought out the second caution of the day.

Truex takes Stage 1

The green flag came back out with six laps to go in Stage 1, which Truex won with ease — his 60th career stage win.

Right behind him was Bubba Wallace, followed by Ty Gibbs, Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson, respectively. It was a crucial stage for a handful of playoff bubble drivers, as Wallace and Gibbs, among others, both gained significant stage points.

Elsewhere, William Byron slapped the wall on the Turn 4 exit, ending his race early after the damage vehicle policy (DVP) clock expired on him. 


Byron wasn't alone, however, as Josh Berry's day was also cut short after bringing out a caution.

Heating up

The green flag was back out on Lap 56. It was short-lived, as Bell wrecked while trying to take the lead from Alex Bowman.


The field was brought down to pit road in Stage 2 due to incoming rain. Reddick was in the lead at that time. 

Bowman, Larson, Truex, Erik Jones, Austin Cindric, Keselowski, Austin Dillon, Wallace and Denny Hamlin — in that order — made up the rest of the top 10 at the time of the delay. The race was then postponed to Monday afternoon. 


Setting the stage

Longtime Detroit Lions fullback Cory Schlesinger gave the command for drivers to start their engines.

Star power
