New Hampshire NASCAR Cup Series race postponed to Monday

Due to bad weather the NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway has been postponed until noon on Monday.

The Crayon 301 NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway has been postponed from Sunday to Monday owing to the area’s constant threat of storms and excessive rain.

The race will now begin at 12:00 ET on Monday and will still be broadcast on the USA Network. PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio will provide radio coverage.

Christopher Bell will launch his No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota from the front row in an effort to defend his victory in the 2022 New Hampshire race. Martin Truex Jr., his teammate from JGR will get off to a front row start next to him.

In his farewell outing at the 1.058-mile track, veteran Stewart-Haas Racing driver and four-time New Hampshire race winner Kevin Harvick will start from position 13 on the starting grid. He aims to set a track record for victories by collecting another trophy.

William Byron of Hendrick Motorsports, who currently leads the championship standings, will line up seventh.

Gates for those attending the race open at 10 a.m. ET. The Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee will allow for an exchange toward another Speedway Motorsports NASCA or NTT IndyCar Series race during the next calendar year for individuals who are unable to attend the race.

Loudon is anticipated to experience persistent heavy rain throughout the day. There was also a flash flood warning for the region.

The Crayon 301 is the 20th event on the calendar and NASCAR only makes one trip to New Hampshire each year. After New Hampshire, there will be just six races left towards the end of the regular season.
