Chase driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. hit the wall on lap 70 at Charlotte on Sunday, leaving him one lap behind the field in the opening race of the second round of NASCAR's playoffs.

Kasey Kahne hit the wall on lap 58 and went behind the wall. Jeff Gordon was the only Chase driver running outside of the top 15 before Earnhardt's wreck. Jimmie Johnson was knocked out of the Chase last week.

Logano had to wait a day to get the win, as the Bank of America 500 was postponed a day due to rain. The race began shortly after noon on Sunday under clear skies.
