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.
