The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway was originally scheduled for today, but has been pushed back to 12PM ET tomorrow (Monday, June 6, 2016) because of heavy rain and fog in the area.

The race will air on Fox Sports 1 and broadcast on MRN Radio.

Brad Keselowski will start on the pole alongside Team Penske teammate Joey Logano.

According to The Weather Channel, there is only a 10% chance of rain for tomorrow’s race with mostly sunny skies.

Yesterday’s NASCAR XFINITY Series race won by driver Kyle Larson was only able to completed 53 of the scheduled 100 laps because of rain in the area.

This will be the first race pushed back a day because of weather since the 2014 Duck Commander 400 at Texas Motor Speedway.
