NASCAR at Indianapolis: Big Machine Vodka 400 postponed

NASCAR at Indianapolis: Big Machine Vodka 400 postponed

Mother Nature wreaked havoc on the entire racing weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, washing out everything including Sunday's Brickyard 400 and Saturday's Lilly Diabetes 250.

NASCAR also moved the time up because of the inclement weather, so the race begins earlier than you might have been expecting. But rain continued throughout the day and the track was ruled undrivable. Blaney, Elliott and Austin Dillon already are locked into the 10-race Cup Playoffs, which start next Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Drivers will have no practice or any other track time before the race. This almost became an issue in last year's Brickyard 400 after a one-hour, 47-minute rain delay took place during the race. It will run at 2 p.m., after the rescheduled Xfinity Series race.

The Xfinity Series was the only scheduled series on-track activity for Friday.




In the NASCAR Cup Series, the race serves as the final event before the playoffs start September 16 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Kyle Busch is scheduled to start on the pole alongside Kevin Harvick when the race does begin.
