Editor’s Note: Due to the postponement of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan, our Fan4Racing Radio show, scheduled for tonight is also postponed to Tuesday (June 11th) night at 8:30 pm ET.

BROOKLYN, Mich. – A persistent drizzle foiled track-drying efforts on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway and forced postponement of the Firekeepers Casino 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event until Monday afternoon.

The race has been rescheduled for 5 pm ET Monday and will be broadcast on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

With pole winner Joey Logano and second-place starter at the head of the field, the Cup drivers got the one-to-go signal at 3 pm. Sunday, but as the cars circled the track, the rain picked up in turns three and four and scrapped the start.

NASCAR ordered the cars to pit road, and the drivers exited. The track was almost dry by 4:15 pm ET when another rain cell struck and forced the postponement. Ryan Blaney, Bubba Wallace, and Corey LaJoie passed the time during the rain delay by throwing a football, eventually lobbing it into the grandstand and playing catch with fans who braved the rain.
