   CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- The Coca-Cola 600 has been delayed on the 126th lap after a FOX Sports television cable fell on the racing surface.
 
   Kyle Busch, who won the Nationwide and Truck series races at the track and is going for a series sweep, incurred damage to his No. 18 Toyota. The cable also got caught up underneath the car of Marcos Ambrose on the 124th lap of the 400-lap race.
 
   Busch was leading at the time of the incident.
 
   No drivers were injured.
 
   The cars were initially brought along pit row as workers cleared the cable from the track. NASCAR then brought teams into the pits and gave them 15 minutes to work on their cars.
