Rain delays Truck race, forces cancellation of All-Star heats

North Wilkesboro rain

NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. — Unrelenting rain and lightning stopped Saturday’s NASCAR Truck Series race in progress and forced the cancellation of qualifying heats for Sunday’s Cup Series All-Star race at North Wilkesboro Speedway (8 p.m. ET ON FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

The Truck Series race, which completed 81 of 250 laps before nearby lightning halted the event, will resume at 11:30 a.m. ET on Sunday. Ty Majeski won the 70-lap first stage and led at the suspension.

The heat races for the All-Star Race will not be run. The $1 million All-Star main event will be preceded by the NASCAR All-Star Open at 5:30 p.m. ET.

The top two finishers from the Open, along with the winner of the Fan Vote, will be added to the 17 drivers already eligible for the All-Star Race.
