Cup race at Bristol postponed until 1 pm ET on Monday

Cup race at Bristol postponed until 1 pm ET on Monday

Since the race did not complete its first two stages - Stage 2 ended after Lap 250 - it was not an official event.

Bayne spun out again on lap 154 and was one lap down in 25th when the race was halted.

NASCAR had hoped to dodge the large severe weather front headed for the Tri-City area by moving up the race's start time.

Kyle Larson will have to wait a second day to try to catch his very first NASCAR Cup Series victory of the growing season. The race is scheduled to resume at 1 p.m. ET.

But this band of rain appears as though it may last quite a long time based on the radar. But it may not matter as rain is predicted beginning in the morning and is expected to last all day and well into the night.

Kyle Larson will lead the field to the green flag when racing resumes.

Five cars are behind the wall, including that of Ryan Blaney, who led 99 of the first 119 laps.

Chris Buescher Michael McDowell, Harrison Rhodes and also Ross Chastain are also outside of this race.

"It's hard to get a rhythm with all the rain and stuff and then getting out of your auto and getting back in".

"So, if we keep getting all these stops and jet dryers and stuff to take the rubber off the track, maybe it will help us out". The hit got Bayne's auto sideways and he hit Harrison Rhodes, triggering multicar wreck that collected race leader Blaney, who had led 99 laps in the No. 12 Ford to that point. His Penske Racing teammate, Brad Keselowski, won Stage 1.

Mattis says: "I believe there was a chemical attack in Syria"
On Monday, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed that Israel bombed a Syrian military base in response to the chemical attacks. The president tweeted on Thursday that an attack "could be very soon or not so soon at all".

FINAL PRACTICE: David Ragan had the fastest lap in the final practice Saturday, while Chase Elliott was second fastest and Denny Hamlin third.

Looking ahead to Monday, the weather looks to be much colder as temperatures will be in the low 40s most of the afternoon.

The red flag is out at Bristol Motor Speedway after 49 laps because of rain.

Intermittent rain also delayed the start by approximately a half-hour.

There was an early wreck on the third lap. That left him three laps down in 26th.

A crash in Friday's opening practice session resulted in the need for Harvick's backup auto. Chastain's is the only auto that had to go behind the wall.

On Lap 156, Trevor Bayne, running 25th and the last auto on the lead lap, spun off of Turn 4 to bring out a caution.

Sunday's Cup race at Bristol got started but then the rains came.

Chad Finchum, making his NASCAR debut, was running 31st after spinning out on lap 140 in his No. 66 Toyota.

Johnson and Harvick have been steadily climbing through the field after starting in the rear. By the time I got away from the auto right in front of me they were already turned right up the race track and I was already going to the top.
