The Aaron's 499 from Talladega Superspeedway is likely to be delayed after early morning storms blanketed the track. The rain continues and there has yet to be an official announcement but SB Nation's Jeff Gluck reports that it takes about two and a half hours to dry the track and the rain still hasn't let up.
If it takes 2 1/2 hours to dry track, there's NO chance the race will start on time unless the rain stops soon, which is not happening.— Jeff Gluck (@jeff_gluck) May 6, 2012
Rain was moving north to south but could be weakening as the morning moves along. It is still likely that the race is run on Sunday but a slight delay is looking more and more possible. An official announcement from NASCAR should be coming soon.
