Weather pushes NASCAR Cup Series race at Charlotte to Monday

By Brandon Reed Reporter

Mother Nature has not been kind to NASCAR this weekend.

One day after the NASCAR Xfinity Series race was postponed by rainy weather, the same weather system has now led the running of the NASCAR Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to be postponed to 3 pm on Monday afternoon.

Rainy weather has plagued the Concord, North Carolina area since Saturday afternoon, when both the Xfinity Series race at Cup Series qualifying was washed out.

That continued Sunday, as the wet weather continued to affect the schedule at the 1.5-mile speedway.  After looking at the forecast for the next several hours, NASCAR officials made the call to push the race to Monday afternoon.

With qualifying having been rained out on Saturday, the starting line up was set by NASCAR’s qualifying metric.  That put William Byron on the pole, with Kevin Harvick alongside in second, followed by Brad Keselowski in third, Denny Hamlin in fourth, and Kyle Busch fifth.

Dawsonville, Georgia's Chase Elliott, Bubba Wallace, Ryan Blaney, Christopher Bell, and Ricky Stnhouse, Jr. rounds out the top 10 starters.
