Coca-Cola 600 Postponed

Coca-Cola 600 Postponed

Watch Monday at 3 p.m. ET


NASCAR postponed Sunday’s Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway because of a forecast for steady rain throughout the evening.


Sunday’s scheduled race, the 14th of the Cup Series season, was moved to a Monday start at 3 p.m. ET. The 600-mile event — the longest NASCAR race of the season — will be broadcast live on FOX, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.


Sunday’s decision to postpone the race comes after a full washout of Saturday’s on-track activities, forcing a cancellation of practice and qualifying and pushing the Xfinity Series race to Monday as well. The Xfinity race moves up to 11 a.m. ET on Monday on FS1, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR.


With no Busch Light Pole Qualifying taking place, the Coca-Cola 600 lineup was set per the rule book, with William Byron set to lead the field to green in his No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.


The decision marks the second time this season the Cup Series will race on a Monday after Martin Truex Jr. won at Dover Motor Speedway earlier this month, claiming his first victory since 2021.
