At 6:30, the race starts. See you the next day!

At 5:45 p.m., Air Titans landed on the track to dry the racing pavement, and they have stayed there even though the rain has stopped. 

When they got on the track, the fans cheered. Still a long way to go before tonight's race. Just to tell you, you were supposed to start the engines about eight minutes ago.

4:43: A message from Marcus Smith, CEO of Speedway Motorsports, which owns Charlotte Motor Speedway: "News from the Charlotte Motor Speedway weather meeting. I heard the following. Rain drops here and there until 6 p.m.

Then the weather gets better, and we start to dry out the track. Expecting to start between 8 and 8:30 p.m. I can't say for sure, but I hope they're right! We'll find out."

4:27 p.m.: Realistically, it doesn't look like this race will start at 6 p.m. as planned. It's still raining, and it usually takes two to three hours for the track to dry, and that's after the rain stops, which it hasn't done yet.

NASCAR and the track haven't said anything about changing the start time, but it looks like the race won't start before much later than 6 p.m., if it happens at all on Sunday. 

4:17 p.m., the Indianapolis 500, which people at this track like to call the "warm-up act" for the Coke 600, is over. It had been shown on the big screen at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and in other places around the track.
