Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400 has been postponed because of rain.
The race is scheduled to start at 11 am ET. Motor Racing Network will be on the air at 10:45 a.m. ET. The race will also air on TNT.
The National Weather Service’s forecast for Sunday is for scattered showers and thunderstorms after noon. It will be partly sunny with a high near 90. Chance of precipitation is 50 percent.
David Gilliland will start from the pole with Reed Sorenson starting alongside him. The second row features Landon Cassill and Bobby Labonte. Six-time champion Jimmie Johnson starts fifth.
Rain prevented drivers from starting Saturday’s race, leaving all 400 miles to run Sunday.
