prior to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway on April 23, 2017 in Bristol, Tennessee.

Bad weather washes out the Food City 500



The Food City 500, scheduled to be today at the Bristol Motor Speedway, has been postponed due to rain.

The heavy rains also washed out the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying on Friday, and the NASCAR XFINITY Series race, which was supposed to be Saturday,  was delayed during Stage 2.

It's the first Monster Energy NASCAR series race impacted by weather this season. The race is now scheduled to run 1 p.m. Monday.
