The NASCAR Cup Series Wurth 400 at Dover Motor Speedway has been postponed to Monday, May 1st at Noon ET due to relentless weather in the area.
Television coverage of the event will remain on FS1 on Monday, and the radio broadcast of the race will also remain on PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Monday.
When the 400-lap slugfest at Dover does go green, Richard Childress Racing's Kyle Busch will lead the field to green. NASCAR Cup Series points leader, and driver of the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, Christopher Bell will roll from the grid from second place.
As for the starting lineup, it was set by the NASCAR Metric Formula, which is a weighted average of several performance factors, due to rain washing out qualifying on Saturday.
The NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover was originally scheduled to take place at 2:00 PM ET on Sunday, but NASCAR had adjusted the start time of the event to 1:00 PM ET in hopes that a window in the weather could be found to get the race in.
By 10:30 AM ET on Sunday, it was quite apparent that no window would be coming as there was no end in sight to the rain on the radar at Dover Motor Speedway.
