NASCAR postpones Dover race to Monday

Rain invaded the Dover, Delaware area on Saturday night and did not let up throughout Sunday, forcing NASCAR to postpone the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Gander RV 400 until noon ET Monday.

The race will be broadcast on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. There will also be a competition caution on Lap 40 due to all of the rubber on the track being washed away as a result of all the rain.

There was a 75% chance of rain to begin with but that increased to 100% in the early morning hours of Sunday. After a long part of the day, NASCAR dried the track and completed the pre-race ceremonies. However, right before NASCAR took the one to go flag, the rain came again and after five minutes of riding around, they brought the teams down pit road and called it.

It will be an all Hendrick Motorsports front row with last week’s winner and the winner from last year’s fall Dover race, Chase Elliott, starting on the pole with William Byron in second.

Four drivers, including Alex Bowman, Martin Truex Jr., Ryan Preece and Matt Tifft  will start the race from the rear of the field after failing pre-race inspection twice.
