The NASCAR Cup Series Würth 400 at Dover Motor Speedway, which was originally scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, has been postponed until Monday afternoon due to rain.
NASCAR weather has already been a big storyline this weekend as precipitation washed out qualifying on Saturday, resulting in the starting lineup being set by the “metric.”
The Würth 400 is now scheduled to go green at noon ET on FS1 on Monday, assuming the weather finally cooperates in Dover.
With this in mind, let’s go ahead and take a quick look at the latest NASCAR weather forecast for Monday, including the chances that we’ll be dodging rain once again at Dover Motor Speedway.
NASCAR Weather Forecast for Monday
According to the National Weather Service, there is rain in Monday’s forecast, though the prospects of racing are much more bullish than Sunday’s.
While there is a 40% chance of rain in Dover today, the noon through 4 p.m. ET window has just a 1-10% chance.
It’s important to note that Dover Motor Speedway does not have lights, so NASCAR does not have the luxury of waiting out the rain to start (or finish) the Würth 400 once the sun sets, if needed.
For those curious, the Würth 400 will be official at the halfway point, which is lap 200 for the 400-mile event.
The latest NASCAR odds show Kyle Larson as the race favorite at +450, followed by Chase Elliott (+600), William Byron (+750), Denny Hamlin (+800) and Martin Truex Jr. (+1000).
