Pennsylvania 400 Postponed to Monday

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.

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.
