HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — NASCAR has postponed its race at Atlanta Motor Speedway because of heavy rain.
The AdvoCare 500 will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday. Any hopes of running the race Sunday night ended when another line of showers moved through the area about 9:30 p.m. — two hours after the scheduled start, and just as crews were finishing up their effort to get the track dry for a late-night start.
NASCAR says there's no chance to get the race in Monday. The forecast calls for 4 to 5 inches of rain and possibly severe weather as remnants of Tropical Storm Lee move through the Atlanta area.
