HAMPTON, GA: Rain has forced the postponement of the NASCAR Busch Grand National Stihl 300 in Atlanta. The race will be held Monday at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Track officials had nearly dried the track when the skies opened again, drenching the 1.54 mile oval.

Rain has been hampering practice and qualifying all weekend. The Busch Grand National cars will line up according to car owner points, provisionals, and the postmark date of entries received.

The weather doesn't look much better for the NASCAR Winston Cup race which is scheduled to be ran Sunday. The forecast is calling for thunderstorms, which could cause the postponement of the Primestar 500.
