Watkins Glen NASCAR Race Postponed By Rain; Start Time Moved To Monday Morning

The only NASCAR winner at Watkins Glen today was Mother Nature.

Persistent rain postponed Sunday's Sprint Cup Series race and washed out officials' valiant efforts to try and dry the track to get the event underway. Unfortunately, it never happened.

Cars remained covered up on pit road throughout the day as the drops fell relentlessly, and NASCAR ultimately called the race at 4:30 Eastern time. The Watkins Glen event was the first Sprint Cup Series rainout in more than a year (April 2010 at Texas), but the second time the Glen race has been moved by rain in the past three seasons.

Unfortunately, the weather doesn't look all that great for Monday, either. Here's the unofficial NASCAR weatherman's forecast as of 4:45 p.m. Sunday.

Here's what you need to know for Monday's NASCAR race:

• Start time: 10 a.m. Eastern

• TV: ESPN ... Radio: MRN (may not be on all affiliates)

• Weather: Scattered showers with periods of dryness
