Rain delayed Camping World Truck Series race at Michigan is underway


After a nearly two-hour delay due to rain, Saturday afternoon’s Career for Veterans 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Michigan International is underway.

A brief shower prevented the Trucks from taking the track and for the race to take the green flag at its originally scheduled start shortly after 1 p.m. ET.

Air Titan attempted to dry the track. However, a large storm cell moved over the track and rain resumed until about 2 p.m. ET, when the clouds cleared and track drying efforts began again.

Pole sitter John Wes Townley took the field to the green. Matt Crafton started on the outside of the front row, while William Byron, who leads the point standings with a record five wins, started from the third position.
