DARLINGTON, S.C. – With thunderstorms circling the area, NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers sat by and waited until there was no longer any hope of getting the track dry for action Tuesday night at Darlington Raceway. The green was scheduled to fly at 6 p.m. but the hands on the clock continued to spin.

NASCAR would eventually throw in the towel at 8:01 p.m.

It was supposed to be the first time on the track for the NASCAR Xfinity Series since March 7 at Phoenix Raceway – a time before COIVD-19 put the entire world in some form of lockdown. Although it looked like there would be a break in the clouds, it never materialized long enough to get the track dry and the cars on the track.

When the green flag does fall, Noah Gragson will lead the field into Turn 1.

The rescheduled start time for the Toyota 200 is noon on Thursday. It will be televised on Fox Sports 1.
