WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Marcos Ambrose should be on pins and needles. He says he’s not.

“No, not at all,” Ambrose said Sunday after NASCAR postponed the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International because of rain. “It keeps me relaxed. You can’t fight the weather.”

The race is now scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Monday, but rain also is in the forecast.

On Saturday morning, Ambrose had the provisional pole until teammate AJ Allmendinger and then Kyle Busch bested his time as all three shattered Jeff Gordon’s track record.

Ambrose, a three-time winner here in the Nationwide Series, will start third behind Busch, who won the pole at 126.421 mph, and Allmendinger.
