Rain Postpones NASCAR Race at Daytona to Sunday Morning
The NASCAR Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway was rained out Saturday night and rescheduled for Sunday.
The 400-mile race, the regular-season finale that will decide the last two playoff spots, will now begin at 10 a.m. EDT. It will air on CNBC
Fifteen drivers remain in the hunt for the postseason. Two spots are still open, although one of them will go to Ryan Blaney or Martin Truex Jr.
Aric Almirola, Chris Buescher, Harrison Burton, Cole Custer, Austin Dillon, Ty Dillon, Todd Gilliland, Justin Haley, Erik Jones
Brad Keselowski, Michael McDowell, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Bubba Wallace need to win to get into the 16-driver playoff field.
Blaney and Truex can advance without winning at Daytona. If Blaney or Truex wins at Daytona, the other automatically gets in on points
f one of the 14 drivers already locked into the postseason lands in victory lane, both Blaney and Truex would make it based on points
If there’s another new winner Sunday, whoever ends the race with more points between Blaney and Truex would advance.
