NASCAR Postpones Texas Race to Wednesday

Tuesday (Oct. 27) evening looked promising for NASCAR to get back to racing in the AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, but no sooner had the sanctioning body announced resumption plans that heavy mist returned to the racetrack.

The Cup Series will try — again — to resume the race on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 3 p.m. ET with coverage on NBCSN. By that time, it will have been about three days since a lap was completed at Texas.

The field completed 52 laps on Sunday afternoon (Oct. 25), but constant mist, rain and fog prevented NASCAR from racing on Sunday evening, all day Monday and all day Tuesday. Air Titans and jet driers continued to attempt to dry the track throughout, ultimately to no avail.

Kevin Harvick, the defending race winner, smacked the wall on Sunday and had to pit for repairs. Clint Bowyer and Jimmie Johnson will lead the field back to green when the race does restart.

  1. Really… at this point can’t we just admit we’ve lost interest in Texas and we’re all ready to start getting pumped for Martinsville?
