Weather again delayed the start of the FireKeepers Casino 400 on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.

Rain in the area led to a revised green-flag time of 3:02 p.m. ET being missed. Cars got on the track, but rain picked up during pace laps to prevent the start, which originally was slated for 2 p.m. ET. Cars were brought down pit road at approximately 3:08 p.m. ET.

The race was postponed until Monday at 5 p.m. ET with coverage on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

When the race gets started, Joey Logano will lead the field to the green flag in his No. 22 Team Penske Ford. Aric Almirola, in the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford, will join Logano on the front row for the season’s 15th race in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Clint Bowyer, the defending winner of the race, will line up fifth as Ford drivers make up eight of the top 10 starting spots.

NASCAR had a sizable contingent of track-drying equipment on hand to prepare the 2-mile oval: 13 Air Titans, 10 jet dryers, one track blower, two track vacuums and one Elgin sweeper.
