Rain continues to dampen Indianapolis, delays start of Brickyard 400

The start of Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard has been delayed because of inclement weather.

Rain begin to fall this morning at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, putting a hold on the Monster Energy Series regular-season finale. Green flag was scheduled for 1:06 p.m. ET.

A Toyota Tundra track-drying team of 19 vehicles is on hand to dry the track as quickly as possible, along with 10 jet dryers and four vacuums. Wet weather has been a factor this weekend as neither the Monster Energy Series nor the NASCAR Xfinity Series have gotten on track at Indianapolis. The Xfinity Series Lilly Diabetes 250 was moved from Saturday afternoon to Monday morning at 10 a.m. ET (NBCSN, IMS Radio Network, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) due to rain.

Kyle Busch is on the pole for today’s race with Kevin Harvick joining him on the front row. Busch is a two-time winner at the Brickyard. When racing does get underway, there will be two competition cautions on Lap 10 and 30. Teams will not be allowed to take fuel until after the second of those competition cautions.

Coverage from the 2.5-mile Indiana track is on NBCSN, IMS Radio Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
