Rain Postpones Bank of America 500 at Charlotte to Sunday for Doubleheader

By David Morgan, NASCAR Contributor

With persistent rain from Hurricane Matthew churning just off of the Carolina coastline, NASCAR cancelled all on track activities on both Friday and Saturday, moving the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series to Sunday for a doubleheader, where weather is expected to be much more favorable.

The Bank of America 500 will kick off at Noon ET, with Kevin Harvick and Alex Bowman leading the field to green, while the Xfinity Series race, the Drive for the Cure 300, will take place 45 minutes after the conclusion of the Cup Series race.

With the move of both races to Sunday, this will mark the second week in a row that the Xfinity Series and Cup Series will race on the same day after both Dover races were run back-to-back last Sunday.

The Cup Series race will be televised on NBC, while the Xfinity Series broadcast will be shown on NBCSN.
