LONG POND, Pa. – Sunday’s ABC Supply 500, which was scheduled for 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN with a 3:09 p.m. ET green flag, has been delayed until Monday owing to heavy rain and not enough time to dry the track before sunset.

Tomorrow’s rescheduled race will air on NBCSN at noon ET with a green flag of 12:09 p.m. ET.

It’s the second race for the Verizon IndyCar Series that has been rain delayed this year, along with Texas Motor Speedway. The Texas race was scheduled for June 11, delayed due to rain and weepers, then restarted on June 12 for 71 laps before heavy rains postponed it to next week, August 27.

Light rain started at about 12:45 p.m. ET and local time, with a light break for about an hour before the heavier rain started just after 2:15 p.m. ET.

Per the track, all valid Sunday gate admission tickets will be honored on Monday.

Parking lots will open at 7 a.m. on Monday and gates at 8 a.m. Those fans who wish to enter via the Infield can do so via Gate 1.

Tickets for Monday’s race can be purchased at Gate 8 of Pocono Raceway beginning at 8 a.m.

The paddock will open at 8 a.m. Monday. Paddock passes valid for Sunday will be honored. No additional paddock passes will be sold.
