WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - The Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International has been postponed until Monday.
Steady rain that began just when the race was scheduled to start Sunday afternoon did not abate in time for track crews to dry the 2.45-mile racing surface.
The race is now scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Monday, but rain also is in the forecast in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.
Last week's race at Pocono had a 1 hour, 40-minute rain delay, but NASCAR was able to complete the 500-mile event.
The 2009 Watkins Glen Cup race won by Tony Stewart also was postponed a day after the track was hit by a string of thunderstorms.
