UPDATE: Constant rain throughout the day has led NASCAR to cancel all practice sessions for the Sprint Cup Series and Camping World Truck Series, along with Truck Series qualifying. The Xfinity Series will hold a one-hour practice session starting at approximately at 4:30 p.m. ET, while the NCWTS will run tonight’s UNOH 225 as scheduled.

Nearly 20 hours after the planned start for the race weekend, the only vehicles that’ve seen Kentucky Speedway are Air Titans and jet driers.

Rain has postponed the start of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series final practice. Originally scheduled to run for nearly three hours starting at 8 a.m. ET, the trucks have failed to see the track as a constant drizzle washes over the track.

The Truck Series is planned to head on-track as soon as it’s dry, running until 10:55 a.m. ET. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is planned to follow with a two-hour practice beginning at 11 a.m. ET. The Xfinity Series will take the track for two afternoon sessions, from 2-3:25 p.m. ET and 4-4:55 p.m. ET, respectively. The Truck Series will then return for Keystone Light Pole qualifying at 5:10 p.m., followed by coverage for the UNOH 225 at 7:30 p.m. ET (FOX Sports 1).

No schedule changes have been announced at this time. However, if any should occur, fans can return to this page to see updates from the track.

Let’s be positive for a moment. All this rain allows NASCAR to blame free fall attendance and lessening TV viewership on the rain rather than the ever so exciting racing.
