Rain Keeps NASCAR Cars Off Track In Indianapolis

14 September 2018

Day-long rain forced postponement of all track activity at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday, forcing postponement of the NASCAR Xfinity Series race until Monday at 10 a.m. The race originally was scheduled for Sunday afternoon, but was moved to Monday due to heavy rains.

Drivers will have no practice or any other track time before the race.

Plus, there are no lights at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, so the race would not be able to be contested once it gets dark.

The Cup race is the final qualifying opportunity for the 16 drivers attempting to make the playoffs.

When the Brickyard 400 does end up getting underway, Joe Gibbs Racing's Kyle Busch is set to start from the pole position in his #18 Toyota alongside Stewart-Haas Racing's Kevin Harvick in second place in his #4. Cable subscribers can also watch on the NBC Sports app.

Both races will be made up on Monday with the Xfinity Series Lilly Diabetes 250 at 10am EST followed by the Brickyard 400 scheduled for 2pm EST.
