DOVER, Del. (AP) — The Latest on NASCAR's race at Dover International Speedway (all times local):

5 p.m.

The NASCAR race at Dover International Speedway has been delayed because of rain.

Clint Bowyer had the lead with 80 laps left when the cars were brought to pit road and covered in tarps. The drivers were allowed to get out of their cars.

Kevin Harvick, who won the first two stages, is second and Joey Logano is third.

Bowyer won this season at Martinsville to snap a 190-race losing streak dating to 2012.

___

4 p.m.

Kevin Harvick has swept the first two stages at Dover International Speedway.

It's the fourth time this season that he's swept the first two stages.

The Stewart-Haas Racing driver is going for his fourth win of the season.

___

3 p.m.

Kevin Harvick has won the opening stage at Dover International Speedway.

Harvick has five stage wins this season.

___

2 p.m.

Pole sitter Kyle Larson has been sent to the back of the field at Dover International Speedway because his No. 42 Chevrolet failed pre-race inspection three times. Larson had won his fifth career pole and was a heavy favorite Sunday on the strength of two runner-up finishes at the track.

Alex Bowman and Austin Dillon also are going to the rear because of inspection issues with their cars. Larson and Bowman lost their car chiefs, and both teams were docked 30 minutes of practice next week at Kansas Speedway.

Jimmie Johnson starts 19th as he tries to snap a career-worst losing streak of 33 races. His last win came last year at Dover, where he's won a track-record 11 times.
