Darlington, SC--Make it three for three in favor of mother nature. As the weekend began on Friday, qualifying for both Winston Cup and the Busch Series was rained out forcing the fields to be set by owner's points.

On Saturday, the start of the Busch Series race was delayed over an hour and a half. And after numerous delays, was finally called at halfway, 74 laps.

Now today, as the big boys in Winston Cup were getting prepared to duke it out on the 1.3-mile track, what else but rain would ruin yet another day of racing. The Southern 500, set to start at 1 p.m. will be impossible as as slight drizzle falls over the historic track.
