1000Bulbs.com 500 Postponed to Monday

After continuous rain showers and several failed attempts at drying the track, NASCAR and Talladega Superspeedway announced that the 1000Bulbs.com 500 will resume on Monday (Oct. 14th) at 2 p.m. ET.

The race was started and run through stage one, with William Byron picking up the victory. When the race resumes tomorrow, Byron will lead the field to green alongside Joey Logano with a little over 130 laps remaining.

It is the first time in the history of the fall race at Talladega that the race will be run on Monday. The race was shortened in 1996 due to darkness, with Jeff Gordon earning the victory.

The first stage of Sunday’s action was rather calm and orderly with only two incidents. As the leaders pitted under green, leader Ryan Blaney spun coming on to pit road, while the other incident occurred when Erik Jones lost a right rear tire on lap 51, with no caution being thrown.

    The irony of something called 1000 bulbs sponsoring a race at a track without lights.
