NASCAR Truck: rain, snow postpones Martinsville Speedway race until Sunday

By AMANDA VINCENT

The Alpha Energy Solutions 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway was red flagged after the completion of 23 of the 250-lap scheduled distance because of a mix of rain and snow Saturday. The race is expected to resume after the running of the STP 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the track Sunday. The Cup race is scheduled to take the green flag shortly after 2 p.m. ET. Providing there are no further delays, the Truck Series race is expected to resume at approximately 7 p.m. Sunday.

Ben Rhodes started on the pole and led all 23 laps of the race, so far. At the red flag, Rhodes’ ThorSport Racing teammates Matt Crafton and Grant Enfinger were second and fourth, respectively. Kyle Benjamin was third. Johnny Sauter was fifth.

Rain and snow are expected at Martinsville throughout the evening Saturday and through the night with snow accumulation possible. NASCAR has a “snow vacuum” on hand to battle possible accumulation.
