LONG POND, Pa. – Due to inclement weather, the Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono Raceway has been postponed until Monday morning.

Early Sunday morning, NASCAR moved the start of the race up to 1:30 p.m., but just after 2:30 p.m., the Pennsylvania 400 was postponed. The race will now broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) at 11 a.m. NBCSN’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Countdown to Green will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Pole-sitter Martin Truex Jr. and Carl Edwards will lead the field to the green flag. Truex Jr. won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway in June of last year, while Carl Edwards found victory at the 2.5-mile track in 2005 and 2008.

According to The Weather Channel, the forecast for Monday’s start may be threatened by rain as well. At 11 a.m., there’s a 55% chance of rain, and as the day continues, the chance of rain is projected to increase.
