Chances of precipitation, both snow and rain, interfering with the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series/NASCAR Camping World Truck Series weekend schedule at Martinsville Speedway are high, especially Saturday — the scheduled race day for the Truck Series and qualifying day for the Truck Series. As of now, Alpha Energy Solutions 250 Camping World Truck Series race is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET Saturday, followed by Cup Series qualifying at 5:10 p.m., while the Cup Series race is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday. Truck Series qualifying is scheduled for 11:05 a.m. Saturday.

Qualifying sessions will not be rescheduled. In the case of inclement weather, starting grids will be determined by car/truck owner points.

If precipitation prohibits NASCAR and Martinsville Speedway from getting the Truck Series race in Saturday, it will be rescheduled for Sunday after the STP 500 Cup Series race. If the Truck Series race is completed Saturday, but the Cup Series can’t run its race Sunday, the Cup race will be rescheduled for Monday at noon. If weather forces the postponement of both races until Monday, the Truck Series will race first at 11 a.m., followed by the Cup Series at 2 p.m., according to ESPN’s Bob Pockrass, via Twitter (@bobpockrass).
