NASCAR flip flops on decision, postpones Gander RV 400 until Monday

Monster Mile race moved, to begin at noon

Dover, DEL- Less than 20 minutes after Richard “The King” Petty instructed racers to start their engines, NASCAR officials we’re waiving drivers back in and postponing Sunday’s Monster Energy Gander RV 400.

The decision to delay the 2 p.m. start time came well before, with moderate rain falling in Dover for over 2 hours straight. At about 3:30 p.m, word came down that officials believed radars had cleared up enough to get at least half the race in. Crews and drivers came out as the rained tailed off, and began setting up equipment.

Approximately 19 minutes after engines were started, drivers were only able to do 4 laps with the pace car, before being called back in for the postponement. The Gander RV 400 will now take place at noon on Monday, with Chase Elliott sitting at the pole.
