It's the third time a Cup Series race at MIS has been postponed to Monday. The sun sets around 9:15 p.m. Parking lots open at 1:30 p.m. and gates open at 3 p.m. on Monday. Cars were on the track, but rain quickly forced them to come onto pit road. It rained for two days in 2007 which forced a race to be held on Tuesday.

It wasn't the first rain delay NASCAR drivers had to endure. After rain delayed the start of this race, it has now been postponed until tomorrow. Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin will be in the second row.

Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia, the race's grand marshal, gave the command for drivers to start their engines, but the race wasn't able to start after that.
