Rain forces playoff postponement at Talladega

By  | 

NASCAR's playoff race at Talladega Superspeedway has been postponed a day because of rain.

William Byron won the first stage, moments before scattered showers halted action. The race will resume Monday at 1 p.m. CDT.

The Alabama superspeedway has a tight window with no lights to permit racing after dark.

Chase Elliott started on the pole with three Hendrick Motorsports teammates right behind him.
