Rain delays NASCAR at Kentucky to today

Rain Saturday night forced NASCAR to postpone the Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway until today.

The 400-mile event was rescheduled for noon. TNT provides the live television coverage.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. will start on the pole in a Chevy alongside Carl Edwards’ Ford.
It was the circuit’s first postponement since last year’s season-opening Daytona 500. The marquee event ran the following night for the first time in its history.
Today’s rescheduling creates the first day Cup race for the 1.5-mile oval after two events at night.
