Rain postpones Cup race at The Glen

By  | 

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - The NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Watkins
Glen International has been postponed because of rain and
rescheduled for Monday.

A thunderstorm hit the track about 2 p.m. Sunday when drivers
were about to start their engines. The course takes at least two
hours to dry. Rain was still falling at 4 p.m, making it too late
to complete the 90-lap event before sunset.

The track stretches nearly 2½ miles around 11 turns and has
several elevation changes.

NASCAR rescheduled the race for noon Monday. Last week's race at
Pocono also was moved to Monday because of rain.
