NASCAR Cup Race at Texas Postponed Once Again

A day after rain forced NASCAR officials to move the Autotrader EchoPark 500 to Monday, the race has been postponed once again.

The remainder of the race is scheduled to resume Tuesday, October 27 at 12 p.m ET/9 a.m. PT on NBCSN.

Rain and a persistent mist plagued the track all day. NASCAR sent out the Air Titans and jet dryers numerous times from the early morning through the evening, but a nagging mist would not let up.

Texas marks the second race of the Round of 8, and 53 laps were completed on Sunday, October 25 before the track became too wet. Clint Bowyer is scored as the leader and will lead the field with the resumption of the race.

    Will they get the Texas race in? Also, Hurricane Zeta will probably mean rain for the east coast next weekend, so will they get Martinsville in next Sunday? Maybe they should just call the whole thing off.

    I am here in Fort Worth and it is raining again today and supposed to rain again tomorrow also. Not sure why they thought it would be a good idea to postpone it to today. The weathermen were very certain about the rain today.

    Carl, it’s supposed to clear up for the weekend so they should get Martinsville in. No idea about TX. I’ve checked a couple of times today and no NASCAR race.

    What if they gave a race and nobody cared? NASCAR is as honest about the prospects for getting this race in as a certain Orange Politician.
