Bristol Motor Speedway tweeted that the Food City 500 has been rescheduled to Monday at 1:00 p.m.

BRISTOL, Tenn. - A steady rain Sunday forced postponement of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway until Monday.

Erik Jones claimed back-to-back Xfinity Series victories, at both Bristol Motor Speedway and on the season.

"Man, we were racing hard", Jones said.

It was an important showing because the weather forecast for Bristol this weekend calls for rain and no one is certain when the cars will next be on track. It was a race I won't forget for a long time. "I didn't know whether we had a winning auto or not". You've got to be running top 10 every race to gain as many points as you can.

In the game-two triumph, Rondo had 11 points, a team playoff record-tying 14 assists, nine rebounds and five steals. He still put up some solid numbers but only played in 47 games while dealing with shoulder and ankle injuries.

"If you would have told me that we were going to win the race, I would have told you you were insane", said Chris Gabehart, crew chief for Jones and the No. 20 Toyota team.

"It's nice to be the point leader and be starting up front here at Bristol". I can promise if you win the race you'll definitely win the Dash 4 Cash. I can't let people just grab me like that. Being handed the pole like this will hopefully help us out. whenever we race.

"I'm sure we will all pit probably because it has shown a lot of tire wear on the left side, so I'm sure everybody will pit", Larson said. Chase Elliott will go from the outside of the front row with Martin Truex Jr, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano rounding out the top-five starters.

"The rain is somewhat of a blessing in disguise you could say because the track was talking about laying down more VHT and they can't do it while it's wet", Busch said. Kevin Harvick, the most recent victor at Bristol, will start 10th.

While the flurry of caution flags helped Jones, Blaney said the succession of short runs in the final 50 laps hurt his chances of winning.
