NASCAR race in Michigan rained out

By  | 

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — The break in NASCAR's Cup Series schedule will have to wait at least an extra day.

Sunday's race at Michigan International Speedway was postponed because of rain. It was rescheduled for Monday at 5 p.m. EDT, the second time in just over a month that a Cup race has been pushed past the weekend because of weather.

The race at Dover early last month was also pushed to Monday. That left a quick turnaround before the following Saturday's race at Kansas. That's not an issue this time. The Cup schedule has an open date next weekend before resuming June 23 at Sonoma. Of course, that means this delay eats into that time off.

Sunday's race never began, and the postponement was announced after a delay of about 2½ hours from the scheduled start time.
