Sunday afternoon's scheduled Wurth 400 NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover (Del.) Motor Speedway has been postponed by rain and threatening weather until Monday at noon (EDT). It is the first weather-related postponement of the season, which has seen all 10 races run as scheduled on Sundays. FS1 will televise the 400-lap race at “The Monster Mile” with live radio coverage on PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

When rain forced a cancellation of Saturday qualification, the grid was set by the NASCAR Rule Book. Kyle Busch and Christopher Bell will start Monday's 400-miler from Row 1, followed by top-10 starters Ryan Blaney and Brad Keselowski on Row 2, Chris Buescher and Chase Briscoe on Row 3, Tyler Reddick and William Byton on Row 4, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Chase Elliott on Row 5.

Ryan Truex drove the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota to victory in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the track, claiming his first career win.
