UPDATED: Trucks on racetrack at Kansas after rain delay, only 1 practice session to be held

3 Comments

UPDATED 5:15 pm ET

The rain has stopped, the track has been dried and the Camping World Trucks are on the racetrack for practice Thursday afternoon at Kansas Speedway.

Because of the rain, the two practice sessions that were originally scheduled — a one-hour and 90-minute session — have been combined into just one 90-minute practice session in preparation for Friday night’s Toyota Tundra 250.

There has already been one early incident: Matt Tifft made contact with the Turn 4 wall.

We’ll have more results and information as this lone practice session goes on.

 

ORIGINAL STORY

Rain has forced the delay of the two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice sessions scheduled for Thursday afternoon at Kansas Speedway.

NASCAR hopes to still get both practices in later today if the rain lets up.

The first session was to go from 3 to 4:00 pm ET, while the second and final practice was to go from 4:30 to 6 pm ET.

Rain has inundated the Central plains since yesterday, including numerous tornadoes in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas. Severe weather has not been near Kansas Speedway.

The extended weather forecast for the weekend is not encouraging, with predictions of rain all the way until Monday.

We’ll update this report as more information becomes available from NASCAR.
