Sunday will be the first time the Cup cars have been on track over the course of the entire weekend.

The race marks the close of the 2022 regular season, with two spots in the playoffs up for grabs.

The postponement comes after Friday night’s (Aug. 26) NASCAR Xfinity Series race was also delayed due to weather, though it was eventually able to start and ended late that night.

Surprise, surprise, its summer in FL. Late PM rain is a given. The network sports producers never learn………


Certainly glad they didn’t change the lineup. Bubba on the pole would draw attention.


Why do you think it was a Motley crew that made up the top 5 in last night’s Xfinity race.


That could have been NA$CAR’s best chance so far to gift Bubba again.It’s going to be a long night for the brain trust to figure out another plan.


Dillon, they will call the race. Nascar is nascar.


TSN2 from 10 to 1:30 on Sunday.

10am? Not even on NBC? or USA? That is really weak. This reminds me of how NBC handled NASCAR coverage its first time around: POORLY.


I may be one of the few people that were glad the race got rained out Saturday night. The Philadelphia NBC affiliate had preempted the race in favor of a Philadelphia Eagles PRE-SEASON game. They didn’t even bother trying to find another network to put it on. This is how little the networks care about NASCAR.

Same for me – did you notice the little 1-hr slot they gave to it just after the game? I thought that was funny. Can’t stand the Eagles or the NFL for that matter – so it’s a double whammy – but speaks volumes especially when you consider that was the final pre-season game where starters don’t even play.


Wasn’t that long ago NASCAR wouldn’t have even considered racing on Sunday morning (or Easter, Mother’s Day, …). Trying desperately to figure out why they’re blowing off their base.
