It's official. The Pennsylvania 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway has been postponed.

A resumption of rain after 2 p.m. ET Sunday, combined with ongoing issues with weepers at the 2.5-mile, three-turn track forced the postponement of the race, which has now been rescheduled for 11 a.m. Monday.

Pocono does not have lights and track drying takes more than two hours, so getting the track dry today and being able to go the full 400-mile distance was not a realistic option.
