Sprint Cup Race at Pocono Postponed to Monday

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.

Tucker White
My name is Tucker White. I'm currently majoring in journalism at the University of Tennessee. I started getting into NASCAR around 1998 and started following the sport full-time in 2001. I live and breathe everything related to NASCAR. I also have a burning passion for all things auto racing. I've been following Formula 1 since 2011 and am slowing getting into IndyCar. I do my best to keep up with the World Endurance Championship. But at the end of the day, NASCAR is my primary beat. Being both a native of Knoxville, Tennessee and a student at UT, I'm naturally a die-hard Tennessee Volunteers fan. Especially when it comes to Tennessee Volunteers football. While I'll never stop being one, it can be the most heart-wrenching thing ever. Since 2005, this team has delivered more than its fair share of heartbreaking moments and inhuman frustration. I've stuck with the Vols from the best of times - 1998 National Champions - to the worst of times - 2005 to present - because I know that it'll make it all so worth it when the mighty Vols finally return to the top of the college football landscape. In the last few years, I started to really get into baseball. This past season, I decided to pledge my sporting allegiance to the Atlanta Braves. It didn't turn out too well as they finished 67-95 and finished fourth in the NL East. I do see great potential with the young roster and they might be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.
