Clear your plans for tomorrow because mother nature is forcing NASCAR to run at the Tricky Triangle on a Monday.
The Axalta “We Paint Winners” 400 at Pocono Raceway has been delayed until tomorrow at noon due to persistent rain showers. The radar for the remainder of today was not showing signs of improvement.
The broadcast will remain in place on Fox Sports 1. The Motor Racing Network and Sirius XM NASCAR Radio will come on the air at 11:30 a.m.
Brad Keselowski will lead the field to the green flag tomorrow alongside teammate Joey Logano.
Rain has caused havoc with the schedule more than once this weekend. Two XFINITY Series practice sessions were cancelled on Friday due to inclement conditions. Rain and fog forced the first practice session for the Sprint Cup Series on Friday to be halted and then called after just 10 minutes. Rain showers forced NASCAR to call yesterday’s XFINITY Series race at lap 53.
This will be the fourth time a Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono has been postponed to Monday for rain, the first race postponed for rain this season and first to be run on a Monday since the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway in April of 2014.
