UPDATE (4:05 pm ET): We’re underway at Road America, even though much of the track is wet.
ELKHART LAKE, Wisconsin — The start of Saturday’s Gardner Denver 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series has been delayed by rain.
The race was supposed to go green at about 3:10 pm ET, but because Road America is so massive — a 4.048-mile road course over 640 acres — parts of the track were receiving showers, while other parts of the track were dry.
Cars took four parade laps, but the event has not officially been started or received the green flag. Cars have been stopped on pit road for roughly 20 minutes.
Cars are also not on rain tires as yet.
UPDATE: At 3:46 pm ET, engines have fired and teams are preparing to follow the pace car around the massive track for a potential green flag start.
