NASCAR: 3M Performance 400 in Brooklyn, MI, cancelled

The NASCAR Nextel Cup race in Brooklyn, Michigan, has been delayed until Monday due to rain.

NASCAR: 3M Performance 400 in Brooklyn, MI, cancelled A steady rain at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich. on Sunday forced NASCAR to postpone the 3M Performance 400 until Monday, 12:00pm EST. But the weather forecast is calling for more rain on Monday, as well, and there is a real chance that the NASCAR race may be delayed further until Tuesday morning or even later into the next week.

 The possibility for further delays of the 3M Performance 400 due to the rain in Michigan could be a potential organization disaster, as the Nextel Cup transporters are due in Tennessee on Thursday afternoon to set up for Saturday night’s Sharpie 500.

 When asked what would happen if the weather over Brooklyn Michigan doe snot improve soon, NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said that they would have to cancel the race and re-schedule it the weekend after Thanksgiving, making it the last race on the schedule. If this happen, it would also make the Michigan race the final event of the 10-race Chase for the championship.

 The cancellation of the Nextel Cup race at the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich. on Sunday came just 45 minutes after it was scheduled to begin and left thousands of fans disappointed, but hoping that tomorrow the weather would improve enough to see a start of the 3M Performance 400.

Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards are favorite to win the 3M Performance 400, both with odds 4/1, as posted by the online bookmaker Bodog Sports.
