NASCAR officials had to push back the start of the Axalta ‘We Paint Winners’ 400 Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway to Monday at 12 noon EDT. The race will air live on FOX Sports 1 after starting the day having to first deal with an early morning fog followed by consistent all day rain showers.
The Penske teams of pole-sitter, Brad Keselowski alongside his teammate, Joey Logano will lead the field to the green flag on Monday.
NHRA Officials were left with little hope of getting the New England Dragway’s Northeast Nationals in on Sunday with a constant pattern of rain forecasted throughout the day. Finally, after a three and half hour wait with the outlook looking bleaker, the decision to regroup was made and start again on Monday.
Top Fuel will kick off the racing action at 11 a.m. EDT, at the track and on NHRA All-Access. The broadcast times have been changed to approximately at 3 p.m. EDT or immediately following the live broadcast of the Pocono NASCAR Sprint Cup race offering full coverage of the event on FOX Sports 1.
Antron Brown (Top Fuel), Ron Capps (Funny Car), and Jason Line (Pro Stock) are the No. 1 qualifiers as eliminations begin on Monday.
