It may seem like déjà vu, but we’re racing at Pocono on a Monday for a second time this season.
NASCAR has postponed the Pennsylvania 400 to tomorrow at 11 a.m. due to rain showers. The track was about dry and track officials were dealing with weepers (water coming up out of the track surface) when the skies opened up.
The amount of time it would have taken to dry the track again, forecasts for more rain and an 8 p.m. sunset forced NASCAR to push the start of tomorrow’s Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway to Monday.
This is the 39th time a race has been pushed from its original date for rain, the second time a race has been pushed to Monday this season and the first time in NASCAR history that two races at the same track have been postponed by rain in the same season.
Coverage of the race will resume tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. on NBCSN and at 10:45 on MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. The green flag is scheduled to drop at 11:07.
