Updated March 2, 2019 - 11:37 am

Racing action at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is back on schedule Saturday after an early morning rain delay.

The NASCAR Cup series morning practice and Xfinity Series qualifying were postponed.

Driver introductions for the Boyd Gaming 300 Xfinity Series will begin at 12:40 p.m. The start of the race will be 1 p.m.

This was one of the few times NASCAR action at LVMS has been delayed by rain.

The 2000 Cup Series race, which started under brisk conditions, was called after 148 of 267 laps, many of which were run under the caution flag after it started to rain. Jeff Burton was declared the winner.
