NASCAR Cup Race in Charlotte Pushed Back Day because of Rain

NASCAR Cup Race in Charlotte Pushed Back Day because of Rain

Created: May 27, 2020 09:33 PM

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Rain washed out the Cup Series race Wednesday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway - a slight break for NASCAR teams taxed by a grueling return to racing.

The race was rescheduled for Thursday night at 7 p.m., which in turn forced NASCAR to move the Xfinity Series race scheduled for Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The turnaround time is too difficult for broadcast partner Fox Sports to leave Charlotte and quickly rebuild its setup in Tennessee under social distancing guidelines.

The Xfinity Series race will instead be run Monday night, a day after the Cup Series.
