Normally when a race is postponed due to weather, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers are forced to pass time in their motor coaches in the infield.

But after the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway was postponed until Sunday at noon ET due to the effects from Hurricane Matthew, some drivers have elected to spend their day out and about in the Charlotte area.

Martin Truex Jr. took the time to sign autographs for fans at a local Furniture Row store.

While Danica Patrick figured it would be a good morning to make a hearty breakfast at home.

Saturday got me like-pancakes!!!!!!! . 2 eggs, 1/2 banana, couple spoonfuls of pumpkin, big spoonful of coconut flour, cinnamon, allspice, cooked in coconut oil. Topped with maple syrup, almond butter, banana, blueberries and more cinnamon! I love cinnamon! And I love these pancakes!

And Clint Bowyer decided, maybe against his will, that is would be a good day to get some shopping done in the soggy weather.

You think a rain out pisses you off?!? This is what has become of my day. #dadduty pic.twitter.com/Y9eKts5LgZ

Overall, the NASCAR community thought it was a good decision to move both the Sprint Cup and XFINITY races back until Sunday afternoon.

Rainout=Bummed... BUT, a @CLTMotorSpdwy day race is better for racing.
