GEICO 500 delayed until Monday

Rain, lightning and wind played the role of spoiler at Talladega Superspeedway for the NASCAR Cup Series.

The GEICO 500 will now be run at 3 pm ET on Monday airing on FOX.

NASCAR issued a lightning warning at 2:39 p.m. ET on Sunday and then rain began falling at the track shortly before 3 p.m. ET. Heavy rain and winds soon followed as a storm system moved through the area of the 2.66-mile track. Track-drying efforts started at 4:05 p.m. ET, and the lightning warning was lifted at 4:27 p.m. ET. However, another storm swept through the area at 5 p.m. ET, and the track was lost.
