Mother Nature 1, NASCAR 0.
Due to persistent rain throughout the day, NASCAR has postponed the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race will take place Monday, June 10.
The rescheduled race will air on Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. ET.
Pre-race ceremonies were completed, the national anthem was sung, and NASCAR sent the cars out for pace laps. The pace car received the one to go single a few times, but Mother Nature had other plans, forcing the cars to return to pit road and keeping the rain coming.
NASCAR repeatedly tried to dry the track, but the weather persisted, and NASCAR had no choice but to postpone the race at 4:30 p.m. ET as it became clear they could not dry the track in time to run a full race in daylight. Michigan does not have lights.
