NASCAR made the call Sunday morning hours before the scheduled start time to postpone the Crayon 301 until Monday.
The race is scheduled for 12 p.m. EST on USA Network. The weather forecast for the upcoming day appears to be more favorable, with some clouds expected and a maximum temperature of 89 degrees. There is only a 10 percent possibility of rain.
A flash flood warning and tornado watch were in effect around the area of the track in Loudon, N.H., when the race was called at approximately 10:45 a.m. ET. on Sunday.
This is the third consecutive Cup race that has been affected by inclement weather.
On the start of Monday’s race, Christopher Bell and Martin Truex Jr., teammates from Joe Gibbs Racing, will be at the forefront of the field.
Bell, the previous year’s race champion, secured the top starting position for the upcoming race on Friday, marking his first pole position of the 2023 season.
The two Toyotas will be followed by three Fords as Aric Almirola will line up third, Joey Logano fourth and Ryan Blaney fifth.
The top-10 starting lineup includes Tyler Reddick, William Byron, Bubba Wallace, Brad Keselowski, and Kyle Busch.
Busch, however, spun around in Turn 1 on his final round qualifying attempt on Friday and hit the wall with his No. 8 Chevrolet.
Busch and his team from Richard Childress Racing will need to begin the race on Monday from the back of the pack.
The Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee is in effect for Crayon 301 ticketholders and Track Pass holders unable to attend the rescheduled races on Monday.
Fans with unscanned Sunday tickets may exchange them ticket-for-ticket for equal or lesser value toward any other Speedway Motorsports NASCAR or IndyCar race during the next calendar year.
