TALLADEGA — So, why did they just race earlier in the day?
It seems to make so much sense. By starting the 1000bulbs.com 500 at 1 p.m. Sunday, NASCAR ran the risk of rain interrupting the race. Sure enough, bad weather came at 1:58 p.m., pushing drivers from the track at Talladega Superspeedway. At 3:33 p.m., NASCAR officials announced the race will be postponed to Monday at 1 p.m.
