Rain Delays Completion Of Martinsville NASCAR Truck Series Race Until Sunday

Story By: REID SPENCER / NASCAR – MARTINSVILLE, VA – NASCAR delayed the completion of Saturday’s Alpha Energy Solutions 250 until Sunday after rain brought the proceedings to a halt after 23 laps at Martinsville Speedway.

The race will resume after Sunday’s STP 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event at the .526-mile short track, with an estimated start time of 7 p.m. It will air on FS1.

Ben Rhodes started from the pole and led every lap of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event before the No. 1 truck of Mike Senica stalled on the track on Lap 15, causing the first caution.

The race never restarted, and NASCAR stopped the trucks on pit road after Lap 23 at 2:16 p.m. Shortly thereafter, NASCAR postponed the race.

Rhodes will remain the leader when the race restarts on Sunday, followed by his ThorSport Racing teammate Matt Crafton, who qualified second, and Kyle Benjamin, who advanced one position from fourth after the start on Saturday.
