Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway Postponed Until Monday, 12:00 PM ET – Televised On ESPNSeptember 18, 2011 No Comments
By now, the first race of the 2011 Chase for the Sprint Cup should be in the books, but that’s not the case after rain diminished any chance at racing Sunday.
Several attempts at drying the track were washed away after rain cells hit the 1.5 mile oval in Joliet, Illinois.
An official word from NASCAR came at 8:03 PM ET, nearly six hours after the expected start time of the Geico 400, saying that the race has been postponed until Monday morning due to excessive rain.
The official start time has been scheduled for Monday, September 19th at 12:00 PM ET (11:00 AM local) with ESPN televising the race at Chicagoland Speedway.Coverage
