The Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway has been postponed due to rain.
The eighth race of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be run on Monday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX. Kyle Larson will start from pole.
The threat of rain was dominant throughout the entire weekend, as the half-mile was drenched with rain throughout Friday, which cancelled qualifying for Cup and the K&N Pro Series East.
Saturday was fairly dry, with the XFINITY race running the full distance while the K&N East race was called after only 70 laps.
Sunday, however, was a monsoon from the start and will stand as the first Monday race of the 2017 season. It is forecasted to be only a 15 percent chance of rain on Monday and there will be a competition caution on Lap 60.
