Cup race at Michigan postponed until Monday

When determining a postponed race time, we work closely with NASCAR and the broadcast partners to find a start time that works for as many of our fans as possible.

Johnny Sauter, driver of the #13 Tenda Heal Ford, drives with Stewart Friesen, driver of the #52 Halmar International Chevrolet, during practice for the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series SpeedyCash.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway on June 06, 2019 in Fort Worth, Texas. MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio will provide radio coverage.

NASCAR officials made the decision to reschedule the 200-lap, 400-mile event following an attempt to get the race started after a one-hour delay Sunday afternoon.

The 36 drivers who were set to compete in the FireKeepers Casino 400 took to the track for the pace laps in attempt to get the race underway after the initial rain delay, but the pace vehicle ended up leading them back down pit lane, much like what it did on Sunday, May 5 at Dover International Speedway before that race was postponed. The track was nearly dry by 4:15 p.m. when another rain cell struck. It was rescheduled for Monday at 4 p.m. (5 p.m. EDT), the second time in just over a month that a Cup race has been pushed past the weekend because of weather.

Will Kyle Busch make it two wins in a row following last week's triumph at Pocono? Defending race victor Clint Bowyer starts fifth.

Joey Logano will start on the pole for Monday's race, alongside fellow Ford driver Aric Almirola, with Fords occupying five of the top six starting positions.
