FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The IndyCar Series race at Texas was postponed late Saturday night after unsuccessful attempts to dry the 1 1/2-mile track soaked by several periods of afternoon rain.

IndyCar officials announced the postponement about 11:30 p.m. EDT, more than 2 1/2 hours after the race had originally been scheduled to begin. The Firestone 600 was rescheduled for 2:15 p.m. EDT Sunday.

The green flag Saturday night had initially been pushed back nearly an hour to 9:45 p.m. EDT. But at that time, the cars were still in the garage area and crews were still working to dry the track though driver introductions and other scheduled prerace activities, including the playing of the national anthem, had been completed.

When the race was called, there were still several obviously damp spots still along the frontstretch.
