NASCAR Washed Out Until Tuesday

HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) -- NASCAR has postponed its race at Atlanta
Motor Speedway because of heavy rain.

The AdvoCare 500 will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday. Any hopes of
running the race Sunday night ended when another line of showers
moved through the area about 9:30 p.m. -- two hours after the
scheduled start, and just as crews were finishing up their effort
to get the track dry for a late-night start.

NASCAR says there's no chance to get the race in Monday. The
forecast calls for 4 to 5 inches of rain and possibly severe
weather as remnants of Tropical Storm Lee move through the Atlanta
area.
