Inclement weather has forced the postponement of Sunday's Samsung Mobile 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, and O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 Nationwide Series race until Monday, April 19, 2010 at Texas Motor Speedway.

The Sprint Cup race has been rescheduled to start at 11:00 a.m. CT and will be followed by the Nationwide Series race at 4 p.m. The Samsung Mobile 500 will be broadcast live on FOX while the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 will be shown live on ESPN2.

RYAN NEWMAN, NO. 39 US ARMY ROTC CHEVROLET: "It is disappointing not to race today, but this happens now and then. We just have to get ready for tomorrow. We have a good car; we are in the top-10 (starts 10th). I think we are going to be good tomorrow, we just have to live with it, it is part of racing.

"We'll just see how it goes at the start. There will have the competition caution to make changes to the car early if we need to adjust to the green race track. It is the same for everybody so we will go out and do our best to get a strong finish for our US Army ROTC Chevrolet."
