The NASCAR Truck Series race has been postponed
Rain postponed the Camping World Truck Series’ Alpha Energy Solutions 250 at Martinsville Speedway from Saturday until Sunday, with the weather expected to turn into a wintry mix later in the day.

The NASCAR Truck race at Martinsville will air at 7PM et. The truck will be the first of the top 3 NASCAR series’ to race run under the new lights at Martinsville.
Note: Last years Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series ran late into the night. The final few laps were run under the lights. That wasn’t exactly expected.
