CNBC will now carry live coverage of tomorrow’s Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, following Saturday night’s rainout of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

The NASCAR race has taken over IMSA’s original 1 p.m. EDT timeslot on NBC, resulting in the race’s shift to the NBC-owned business news and financial cable network. 

The IMSA race, still set for a 1 p.m. start, will also be available on the NBC Sports App and on NBCSports.com.

It marks the second NASCAR rain delay to affect WeatherTech SportsCar Championship broadcasts in as many weeks.

A three-hour recap show of last weekend’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen was delayed by multiple hours on NBSCN due to a rain delay for the NASCAR race at Chicagoland Speedway, in the first NBC on NASCAR weekend of the season.
