Axalta ‘We Paint Winners’ 400 at Pocono Postponed to Monday

Though there wasn’t a lack of determination from NASCAR and the teams to get the Axalta ‘We Paint Winners’ 400 in on Sunday at Pocono Raceway, the rain could not be silenced.

Following ongoing rain, mist and fog, the Sprint Cup Series event was postponed to Monday, where the field is scheduled to take the green flag at noon ET.

Under what is forecasted to be dry, sunny conditions, the 14th round of the 2016 season will stand as the first postponement since Charlotte last fall.

Team Penske, with pole-sitter Brad Keselowski and teammate Joey Logano, will lead Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards into Turn 1.

As an indication of the high esteem in which the NA$CAR “race” is held by the Fox brain trust, here is a list of the programs shown at the same time on the real network, starting at the 11:30 time of the pre-“race” show:

TAI Cheng (appropriately enough about pain relief)
Learn Secrets to Wall Street
Xploration Outer Space
Xploration Earth 2050 (if NA$CAR is still around DW is still trying to be an “expert analyst”)
Live Life and Win
The Young Icons
TMZ

‘Nuff said!
