Truck Qualifying Cancelled, Race Postponed to Saturday Morning

JOLIET, Ill. — Heavy rain, thunder and lightning messed with the Camping World Truck Series’s schedule for Chicagoland Speedway on Friday, canceling qualifying and forcing the postponement of the American Ethanol e15 225 to Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m CT.

All but five trucks were able to take to the track for the first round of single-truck qualifying late Friday afternoon, but lightning in the area quickly brought the on-track action to a halt.

As a result of the resulting cancellation of qualifying, the 32-driver starting grid for tomorrow morning’s 150-lap race was set by opening practice speeds – placing Kyle Larson on the pole.

Title contenders Matt Crafton, Johnny Sauter, Tyler Reddick and Timothy Peters will make up starting positions two-through-five while Daniel Suarez, Cameron Hayley, Erik Jones, Ben Kennedy and Brandon Jones.

With 34 drivers entered for what was supposed to be a 7:30 p.m CT race on Friday, Chad Boat and Ross Chastain were the two DNQs for the weekend’s event.

Tomorrow morning’s race will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 2 and MRN.
