and the Nationwide Series race has still not started yet due to rain. The weather right not in the area is not that great and it will take at least 2-3 hours to dry the track off.
The race could get pushed back to around 8PM EST on Sunday which would push back after the end of the Sprint Cup race if it did run. That is a rarity, but has been done before.
6:30PM update: The race has been officially postponed to 9pm EST on Sunday. The race is still scheduled to run on ESPN2.
