By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service

LOUDON, N.H. – With torrential rain and the threat of storms in the area all day, NASCAR has decided to push back Sunday’s scheduled Crayon 301 NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to Monday.

The race will now start at noon ET Monday and will still be televised on the USA Network with radio coverage on both PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Christopher Bell will start his No. 20 Toyota from pole position in hopes of defending his victory in the 2022 New Hampshire race. His JGR teammate Martin Truex Jr. will start alongside on the front row. 

Veteran Stewart-Haas Racing driver Kevin Harvick, a four-time New Hampshire race winner, will roll off 13th on the grid in his final start at the 1.058-mile track hoping to hoist another trophy and mark an all-time victory record at the track.

Championship points leader, Hendrick Motorsports driver William Byron will start seventh.
