MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Rain and snow have forced the postponement of today’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway, as well as canceled the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Qualifying.

The Alpha Energy Solutions 250 went just 23 laps before it was red-flagged. It was not a surprise to anyone involved, considering the forecast for today made getting anything in unlikely. Barring inclement weather during tomorrow’s STP 500, the Truck Series race will resume at 7 p.m. on FOX Sports 1.

Ben Rhodes currently leads the Truck Series race.

Martin Truex Jr. will lead the field to the green flag in tomorrow’s Cup race, as a result of Cup qualifying being canceled. The schedule for it remains unchanged.
