Rain postpones Food City 500 until Monday

15 April 2018 23:34

The remaining 296 laps of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway will be completed on Monday after persistent rain on Sunday forced its postponement.

The 500-lap race was brought forward an hour after the weather forecast showed a 90 per cent chance of precipitation with thunderstorms.

It proved accurate as the event at the half-mile Tennessee track was paused three times due to rain. 

Ryan Blaney got off to a strong start but his race ended in a crash on lap 117 when he failed to avoid a collision between Trevor Bayne and Chris Buescher, so Kyle Larson will be the leader when the action resumes.
