NASCAR announced the Cup race has been postponed until noon ET Monday after rain kept the race from beginning. The race will air on Fox Sports 1 and carried by Motor Racing Network on the radio. SiriusXM NASCAR Radio will have MRN’s broadcast.

The green flag for Sunday’s Cup race was scheduled to wave at 4:01 p.m. ET, nearly two hours after the scheduled start, but rain began to fall as the cars were on the track for the pace laps. NASCAR brought the cars back down to pit road at 4:07 p.m. ET.

Chase Elliott will start on the pole and be joined by Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Byron.

Four cars will start at the rear of the field for failing inspection Sunday morning.

The forecast for Monday calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of 66 degrees and a 15 percent chance of rain.
