Persistent rain Sunday forced NASCAR to postpone the Cup playoff race to Monday morning at Texas Motor Speedway.
The race is scheduled to resume at 10 a.m. ET on NBCSN.
The middle event in the Round of 8 had run 52 of 334 laps when the field was brought down pit road because of rain. After about four hours of attempting to dry the track, NASCAR announced the postponement. Clint Bowyer was leading when the race was stopped.
A spot in next month’s championship race is up for grabs should a playoff driver win Monday’s race. Joey Logano secured a spot in the Phoenix season finale by winning last weekend at Kansas.
