FORT WORTH , Texas — The resumption of NASCAR 's Cup playoff race in Texas was still on hold Monday because of more rain and a dreary forecast. There was no official word from NASCAR on when the race might proceed. Only 52 of the 334 laps were completed Sunday before mist and drizzle

Accordingly, the second race of the "Round of 8" should now - if the weather permits - continue on Tuesday at 17:00 CET (11:00 local time) with the status after the 52 laps on Sunday.

Clint Bowyer is in the lead ahead of Jimmie Johnson and Erik Jones. The best-placed of the eight playoff participants is Joey Logano in fourth place in the current classification of the race, which was mixed up a bit by different pit stop strategies. The Penske driver is the only one who is already safely in the four-man final (November 8th in Phoenix).

Right behind Logano, Martin Truex Jr. is currently fifth in the ranking of the interrupted race. Before the start on Sunday , the Gibbs pilot was deducted 20 points for a rule violation . He is now dependent on a win in Fort Worth (whenever the race takes place) or in Martinsville (scheduled for Sunday) to reach the finals.
