The Pocono IndyCar race that was due to take place on Sunday has been postponed until Monday because of wet weather.
The race was due to begin at 3.10pm local time, but an afternoon of heavy rain coupled with a forecast for persistent downpours throughout the rest of the day forced race organisers to postpone the start.
The contest will now begin at 12.09pm local time on Monday, when Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver Mikhail Aleshin will begin on pole.
Pocono is the second race so far this season to be altered as a result of poor weather, after the June 11-scheduled Texas Motor Speedway event was initially postponed until the following day.
Just 71 laps were completed of that race before rain returned and the event had to be postponed again. The Texas race will resume next weekend.
