Xfinity Race Postponed Until Monday, MENC Race in Limbo at Indy
INDIANAPOLIS, IN - RIS - The start time for Sunday’s regular-season finale in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was moved up one hour, and the start of the Xfinity race was moved to Monday because of inclement weather in the forecast.
The Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard is scheduled to get underway at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday with coverage on NBCSN, IMS Radio Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. Meanwhile, the Lilly Diabetes 250 will move to Monday at 10 a.m. ET with coverage on NBCSN, IMS Radio Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
The forecast calls for a 90% chance of rain on Sunday, so plans are up in the air for which day the race would be held if Sunday is a washout. This caps a regular season where rain was in the forcast and even snow at Martinsville Speedway. Stay tuned to RIS for future developments.
