HAMPTON, Ga. -- The fans were ready. The teams were ready. NASCAR was ready. But the weather wouldn't cooperate Sunday, forcing the postponement of the AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Due to public safety concerns -- Monday's forecast calls for possible tornadoes and strong winds in addition to heavy rain -- NASCAR president Mike Helton said the race has been rescheduled for 11 a.m. ET Tuesday, and will be broadcast live on ESPN. The garage will open two hours earlier for crews.
