Richmond race moved to Sunday at 1pm

Richmond, VA— Steady rain that began Friday night and expectations that it would continue through Saturday with Tropical Storm Hanna moving in forced NASCAR to postpone Saturday night’s Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

The Chevrolet 400, which will finalize the field of 12 drivers who will be eligible to compete for the 2008 series championship, is now scheduled to be run at 1 p.m. Sunday.

The Nationwide Series race scheduled for Friday night was moved to Sunday at 7 p.m. NASCAR said the field for both races will be set based on driver’s standings and that the garage will be closed and the cars impounded until 7:30 a.m. on Sunday.
