RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Persistent rain has forced NASCAR to postpone Saturday night's race at Richmond International Raceway.

It has rained all day at the track, and NASCAR made the decision to call the event roughly one hour before the scheduled start.

It's the second consecutive week the Sprint Cup Series has been disrupted by weather. Rain caused nearly a 90-minute delay Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway, and the race was stopped for a four-hour rain delay not long after it finally began.

In all, the Bristol event took nearly nine hours to complete from start to finish.

Joey Logano will start from the pole whenever NASCAR does race. It is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Sunday.
