Rain Cancels Racing Action
Heavy downpours from passing thunderstorms forced the Albany Saratoga Speedway in Malta to cancel its scheduled racing program Friday night.
Rain also caused NASCAR to cancel the scheduled qualifying session for the Camping World Truck series but the weather turned better at Dover International Speedway on Friday for the race which was won by Kyle Busch. Busch dominated at the Monster Mile and is now 4 for 4 in the truck series this year.Qualifying for NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series was also held on Friday. Busch did not win the pole – Brad Keselowski did – but he will be starting his No. 18 Toyota alongside Keselowski on the front row. Keselowski’s teammate, Joey Logano, qualified third. Last week’s Coca-Cola 600 winner and eight-time Dover winner Jimmie Johnson will start fourth. Rookie Kyle Larson rounds out the top five starters. Here is the complete starting lineup.
Cup drivers Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Larson will be running today’s Nationwide Series race at Dover as well.
