Tune in at 1:19 PM ET for coverage of the Pennsylvania 400. Scott Johnson will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
What's going on everybody, Scott Johnson here liveblogging the Pennsylvania 400 here at Pocono. We're currently under a rain delay, the race probably won't begin until 3 pm, if that.
Flash flood warning around Pocono Raceway.
Sunset is 8:12 p.m. so we have some time. It's just that there is a cell in western Pennsylvania that also could come by.
They'll run some vehicles around the track to get rid of puddles and then the jet dryers will be on track shortly.
(The vehicles not being NASCAR cars of course)
1:15pm/et rain has stopped at Pocono, 10 jet dryers on track, radar looks good for a while, takes about 120 minutes to dry Pocono
@gustavo Hey Gustavo, I would say around 1 oclock pacific.
ESPN reports that driver intros are set for 2pm EST.
Driver introductions are at 2 p.m. EST. The track won't be ready for racing by then, of course.
Jet dryers are on the track now.
More activity is firing 75 miles west and more could fire between that and Pocono.
Sun now shining, jet dryers still doing work though.
@Ryhn Still looking to start this race around 3:15.
Track estimated to be dry between 3-3:30.
Next rain cell could be 45 minutes to an hour out.
The Invocation is underway.
From the looks of it, we have a 70% chance that this race will NOT get to halfway.
While the anthem and invocations are done, the track still isn't ready yet. Bit of sun creeping through on track, but rain is coming.
Teams told to take the covers off the racecars.
Drivers being called to their cars.
Engines to be fired shortly.
There will be a competition caution at lap 20
36 to the rear for engine change
Carl Edwards is being told that some drivers are saying that the track is wet down low around the tunnel turn.
Finally green folks, Montoya is your race leader.
Hamlin steals the lead from Montoya, but Montoya takes the lead back.
Folks, bear with me for 10 minutes as I have to move my computer to the newsroom. Will update, but not as frequent for the next 10 minutes.
