NASCAR Says Tuesday For Atlanta Race

It's been a weather weekend to remember. Lots of sports have been affected by rain and lightning, including NASCAR.

Despite waiting for hours, a final shower put the wraps on efforts to dry the Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday night. Due to weather concerns about flooding from Tropical Storm Lee on Monday, NASCAR will postpone the race until 11AM on Tuesday.

ESPN will have the coverage. Normally in this type of delay situation, the Tech Garage and Infield Pit Studio hits the road to the next destination. The coverage goes back to basics with just the crew in the TV booth and the pit road reporters.

We will be there to live blog the race and hope that the weather clears so the race for the Chase can stay on schedule. Have a great Labor Day!
