The Coke Zero Sugar 400 had a controversy on Sunday afternoon. 

It ended up raining for an entire lap during the race and according to Justin Haley, all the drivers lost traction at the same time. 

Daniel Suarez was also confused as to why a caution flag wasn't thrown when it was about to rain. 

This led to a multi-car accident between several drivers as they were making a turn.

NASCAR fans aren't happy that the caution was thrown too late. 

NASCAR is currently trying to dry the track so that the race can be completed. There are only 21 laps left.
