Firestone 600 Postponed Until August 27 Due to Storm

After failing to start the race on Saturday, the already postponed Firestone 600 was moved from Sunday to late August

The Firestone 600 simply wasn't meant to be.  Or, at least it wasn't mean to be in June.

The Indy Car race will finish on August 27 after two days of rain in Fort Worth.  Rain on Saturday prevented the race from starting on it's originally scheduled day.  The green flag dropped on Sunday and James Hinchcliffe led the way through 71 laps when the race was called due to rain.

NBC 5’s David Watkins talks with Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage after the postponement of the Firestone 600.

"It's a lot frustrating, and there's nothing you can do about it.  The knowledgeable fans know that.  We used a little over 10,000 gallons of jet fuel last night and today to try to dry the track, but you know it's just one of those things," said Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage.  "It just wasn't meant to be.  You won't win you're fighting mother nature."

Tickets for the June race will be valid in August.
