Truck Series race at Charlotte pushed back to Saturday
Rain throughout the day at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., on Friday that was expected to continue through the night and Saturday early-morning hours forced the postponement or cancellation of all on-track activities originally scheduled for Friday. That included qualifying and racing for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 Truck Series race, originally scheduled for Friday night, has been rescheduled for an approximate 12:30 p.m. ET start Saturday.
While the race was postponed, the series’ qualifying session was cancelled. Rain also pelted Charlotte Motor Speedway on Thursday, but the Truck Series was able to get on the track Thursday evening for a single practice session. The starting grid for the Friday-turned-Saturday race has been set based on speeds from that practice session. As a result, William Byron will start on the pole and have Spencer Gallagher alongside on the front row. Thirty six trucks/drivers were at the track to attempt to qualify for the Truck Series race, but with a full series race field consisting of only 32 trucks, four drivers were shut out, including Austin Theriault, Caleb Holman, Jesse Little and Austin Hill.
