Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at Dover International Speedway was postponed until Sunday because of wet weather in Delaware. The event will be run as a double-header with the Sprint Cup Series race at Dover.

The Xfinity Series event is rescheduled for 10 a.m. (on CNBC), Cup race, scheduled for 2 p.m. (NBCSN). Fans with tickets to either race will be admitted for both. Tickets are available at NASCAR.com/tickets.

Cup Chase drivers Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Austin Dillon all were entered in both races and faced the prospect of 600 high-speed laps at the Monster Mile.

 

 

Regan Smith will replace Dillon in the No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet for Sunday morning’s XFINITY race while Ryan Blaney will replace Logano.

The last time NASCAR held an XFINITY-Sprint Cup doubleheader was April 25, 2010 at Talladega Superspeedway.
