The Gander RV 400 at Dover International Speedway has been postponed until Monday (May 6) at noon ET.
Inclement weather rolled into Dover early Sunday morning, causing a heavy downpour throughout the early afternoon. Cars were able to get on track for the pace laps but a heavy mist turned into rain. NASCAR quickly called the drivers down pit road and covered them up.
When the green flag flies, Chase Elliott will start from the pole. On Sunday morning, NASCAR announced Martin Truex. Jr., Alex Bowman and Ryan Preece failed pre-race inspection twice, meaning a crew member from each team was ejected from the premises and will serve a 15-minute practice penalty at Kansas Speedway next week. All three drivers will start at the rear of the field.
Matt Tifft‘s No. 36 failed three times, meaning he’ll serve a 30-minute penalty at Kansas and when the green flag flies at Dover, his Ford will serve a pass through penalty under the green flag. Tifft will also start at the rear.
