TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — NASCAR’s playoff race at Talladega Superspeedway has been rained out and rescheduled for Monday afternoon.

NASCAR pulled the plug early because Talladega does not have lights.

NASCAR does not like to start a race unless it believes it can complete the full distance.

The 500-mile race averages 3 hours, 41 minutes and NASCAR likely would have run out of daylight.
