Frequent severe weather and lighting have postponed Sunday’s GEICO 500 for the NASCAR Cup Series at Talladega Superspeedway to Monday afternoon.
The green flag is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET on FOX and also be broadcast on MRN Radio and Sirius XM Radio Channel 90.
Rain and severe weather, which included lightning, hampered ongoing track drying efforts that were eventually abandoned in favor of postponing the race to Monday.
This marks the second consecutive Cup race at Talladega rescheduled to Monday, following last fall’s event also being pushed a day later with Ryan Blaney winning the 1000Bulbs.com 500.
Talladega Superspeedway does not have lights that can illuminate the racing surface for on-track activity.
