NASCAR officials were forced to postpone the AAA Insurance 200 Camping World Truck Series race, scheduled for Friday night, after rain moved into Dover International Speedway.

Drivers were already inside their trucks and the engines had been fired just before the rain started to fall.

Since Dover does not have lights at the track, NASCAR deemed that they would not have enough time to race the full distance before dark. 

Therefore, the race has been rescheduled to Saturday at 6 PM EST, immediately following the completion of the Nationwide Series race.

Ron Hornaday Jr. qualified on the pole and will lead the field to green on Saturday. The remaining drivers in the top 10 are Colin Braun, Brian Scott, Johnny Sauter, Chad McCumbee, Terry Cook, Johnny Benson, Todd Bodine, Brian Ickler, and Kyle Busch.
