DOVER, Del.- Because of the continued rainfall, NASCAR and Dover International Speedway have announced the cancellation of Friday's on-track activities.

The "Drive Sober 125" NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race will now be run at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3. Grandstand gates at Dover International Speedway will open for fans at 8 a.m.

The Saturday, Oct. 3 "Hisense 200" NASCAR XFINITY Series race will start at the originally scheduled time of 3:30 p.m.

Officials said that because both events will be run on the same day, for the convenience of fans, Dover International Speedway will allow anyone with a previously purchased NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race ticket or a NASCAR XFINITY Series race ticket to remain in the grandstands for both events if they choose. The ticket holder that holds the ticket for that specific event will have priority (i.e. a ticket to the NASCAR XFINITY Series race during the running of that race) for the seating location, according to officials. They said the other ticket holder is asked to move to a nearby, or general admission, seating area for the event. Fans are asked to please contact your usher with any questions or concerns.

The Sunday, Oct. 4 "AAA 400" NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race will start at its originally scheduled time at 2:30 p.m.

Qualifying for all three series this weekend has been canceled. Starting lineups will be set by NASCAR rulebooks.

Officials said they continue to work closely with NASCAR, the National Weather Service and our on-site meteorologist to monitor the weather. Officials said they are tracking this weekend’s weather and will update fans via social media, and the Dover International Speedway, as information becomes available.
