Rain washed out Sunday’s NASCAR Nextel Cup race at Dover International Speedway, marking the third time this season that weather disrupted the schedule.
Although more rain is forecast for the next 24 hours, NASCAR officials announced plans to drop the green flag on the Autism Speaks 400 at 1 p.m. today.
Fox will broadcast the event as planned.
Assuming weather permits, Ryan Newman will start today’s race from the pole with fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. alongside.
Columbia native Carl Edwards, who won Saturday’s Busch Series race at Dover, starts in fifth.
SPORTS CARS: For the 17th year, the members of the Camaro Club of Kansas City and the Gateway Camaro Club of St. Louis will meet for a picnic Sunday at Stephen’s Lake Park and will present a trophy to the club that brings the most Camaros to the event.
GOLF: K.J. Choi figured the best way to learn to play golf was to study books by Jack Nicklaus and spend hours watching video of golf’s greatest champion.
It was only fitting Choi celebrated the biggest victory of his career at the Memorial on Sunday with a handshake from Nicklaus that was as meaningful as the trophy.
Choi ran off four straight birdies on the front nine to take the lead, then finished with three clutch par saves from the bunkers and gallery to close with a 7-under 65, giving him a one-shot victory over Ryan Moore.
