Martinsville, VA (AP) - NASCAR has postponed its race at Martinsville Speedway to Monday afternoon because of rain.
Showers lingered over the track in southwest Virginia on Sunday, and the absence of lights for night racing meant the window for racing was closing quickly.
NASCAR does not allow a race to start unless it's feasible for the entire event to be run, and races on the shortest, oldest track in the Sprint Cup Series can take up to 4 hours.
The call to postpone was made about 90 minutes after the scheduled 1 p.m. start.
The green flag will drop Monday morning at 11:00am and will be telecast on FOX.
