SPEEDWAY, IN - RIS - Today's winner was the weather.  NASCAR announced postponement of the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard for tomorrow at 2pm.  NASCAR used at least 14 Air Titan track dryers starting at 9 o'clock this morning to try to dry the track before the 1pm start time, however Mother Nature had other plans.  The overcast skies dumped a steady drizzle of rain this afternoon.

Tomorrow's racing schedule at Indianapolis Motor Speedway:

10:00 am   Lilly Diabetes 250 (NASCAR Xfinity Series)

  2:00 pm   Big Machine Vodka 400 at The Brickyard (Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series)
