High winds and rain have delayed the start of the Kobalt 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The green flag was supposed to fly at 12:30 .
Track dryers are lapping the track but the 30 mph winds gusts are the bigger concern.
“This wind is just incredible,” driver Joey Logano said. “I think you are going to see a lot of guys slipping and sliding out there.”
“I’ve been at every Cup race since 1985. I’ve never seen wind like this,” said FOX TV NASCAR analyst Micheael Waltrip.
