NAS: NASCAR Cup race at Talladega (rain) postponed till Monday


Share post:

The NASCAR Cup Series YellaWood 500 at Talladega has been postponed until Monday because of rain.

The race, the second of the series’ Playoffs Round of 12, was rescheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Monday.

The race had been scheduled to start Sunday at 2 p.m. ET.

Denny Hamlin, who won a week ago and has already earned a berth in the Round of 8, will start from the pole.

Intermittent showers plagued the track all morning. At about 2:45 local time, the cars took to the track for warmup laps. But with one warmup to go, heavy rain struck the front stretch.

Because the 2.66-mile oval has no lights, officials postponed the event, which normally takes well over three hours to complete.
