FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway has been postponed by rain.

It will be run Monday at 11 a.m., nine hours before the start of the NCAA national championship game in nearby Arlington.

It's the third time in seven Sprint Cup Series races this season that rain has hampered the event. The season-opening Daytona 500 was stopped for more than six hours, and the race at Bristol Motor Speedway had two delays totaling more than five hours.

Sunday's event at Texas didn't start as scheduled as steady rain saturated the track. NASCAR's new track drying system requires two hours to dry the 1.5-mile speedway, but the unseasonably cool temperatures made the task more difficult.
