NASCAR’S Cup Series race at Talladega postponed to Monday

Talladega, AL, June 21/20 (NASCAR Staff Report):

Rain, lightning and heavy winds in the late afternoon at Talladega Superspeedway ultimately led to the postponement of Sunday’s GEICO 500 until Monday. The race will now move to 3 p.m. ET on Monday with coverage on FOX, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio and NASCAR.com. TSN (TSN1/3) will also carry this race live at the same time.

NASCAR issued a lightning warning at 2:39 p.m. ET on Sunday and then rain began falling at the track shortly before 3 p.m. ET. Heavy rain and winds soon followed as a storm system moved through the area of the 2.66-mile track. Track-drying efforts started at 4:05 p.m. ET, and the lightning warning was lifted at 4:27 p.m. ET. However, another storm swept through the area at 5 p.m. ET, and the track was lost.
