It's been a bad couple months for NASCAR in the weather department.
After the Watkins Glen and Atlanta races were postponed for a combined three days, the Sprint Cup Series headed to Chicagoland Speedway to start the Chase with a mostly dry forecast.
As late as Saturday night, meteorologists were calling for a pleasant Sunday with showers arriving in the Chicago area only after 5 p.m.
They screwed up.
It's been raining all morning in Illinois, and persistent drizzle has resulted in a delayed start time for the Geico 400 as of 2 p.m. Eastern time.
Unfortunately, more rain is on the way and NASCAR may not be able to get the race started on Sunday – despite the presence of lights at Chicagoland.
We'll keep you posted here, but if you want our honest take, it's this: The race probably isn't going to get in today, so don't spend your day stuck in front of the TV (unless you're watching football, of course).
