FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Rain has forced NASCAR to postpone its
scheduled Sprint Cup and Nationwide doubleheader at Texas Motor
Speedway until Monday.
The Sprint Cup race was called Sunday about 75 minutes after its
scheduled 3:16 p.m. EDT start because of persistent drizzle and an
uncertain forecast the rest of the day. The race was rescheduled
for 12 p.m. EDT Monday.
Wet weather Saturday forced the postponement of the Nationwide
race then. It had been rescheduled for Sunday night after the Cup
race. It will now be run after the Cup race Monday.
About 2½ inches of rain fell at the track Saturday and Sunday.
The forecast Monday calls for cloudy skies with only a minimal
chance of rain.
