    NASCAR just announced the Cup race was moved up to Saturday afternoon, 2 PM EDT.

    It was supposed to be Sunday afternoon. This also affects the Xfinity and Truck races, obviously.

    Would expect revised weekend Atlanta schedule soon but sounds like teams are being told no practice. Trucks likely qualify this afternoon and race tonight. All Xfinity and Cup qualifying and race Saturday.

    Nothing official from NASCAR but sounds like from what it is telling Cup teams no Cup practice today and possibly qualify and race Saturday. Haven’t heard on Xfinity or trucks yet. Everything seems fluid.

    I wish they made the cup race the night race

    Breaking: Per source, NASCAR has changed course and postponed this weekend’s races at Atlanta.

    Pockrass removed his tweets. Stevie tweeted it is canceled, yet reporters at the track have not tweeted anything.

    Chris Knight did report that it’s cancelled (postponed?).

    Next week postponed too.

    ….

    And Bob Pockrass too ….

    Originally sounded like a rain thing (and the ease to change scheduling because no fans were allowed) … as the proposed rescheduling would have done nothing to alleviate COVID-19 concerns (in fact, making the track more crowded tomorrow would have done the opposite).

    Once again … scratching my head regarding NASCAR’s collective thought process ….

  • yisman

    It sounds like someone got to NASCAR and convinced them to follow suit.

    And postpone everything indefinitely, as PGA, MLB, NBA, NHL did.

    NASCAR announces its Atlanta and Homestead races postponed (which means there is an intent to make it up) … IndyCar has canceled its events at St Pete, Long Beach & Austin.

    NASCAR had tentatively planned to try to get the Cup race in tomorrow but it just announced it postponed all events at Atlanta and Homestead.

    Totally agree with the decision ….

    But as I’ve said over the years … many, many times … what is NASCAR thinking?

    As the rest of the world had already canceled everything … they hold-out to the last minute and make all three major NASCAR series haul all their cars, equipment, and staff to Atlanta just to hang-out and then shortly before the first practices of the day are to begin … they finally decide to cancel the whole weekend?

    Thought once Brian “Purple Haze All in My Brain” France was finally forced out … decision making would become more rational ….

    #PipeDream

    EDIT: Yes … that’s my Jimi Hendrix nickname for Brian France if anyone is wondering ….
