Morning rains have forced NASCAR to postpone Saturday’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Pocono Organics 150 at Pocono Raceway to Sunday at 9:30 AM ET.

With the first NASCAR Cup Series event of the weekend (there will be two) scheduled for 3:30 PM ET on Saturday coupled with the fact that the track does not have lights, there was not enough wiggle room for NASCAR to fit the Truck race in on Saturday.

Now, this means there will be a triple header of NASCAR action at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, as the Truck Race (at 9:30 AM ET) will join the NASCAR Xfinity Series race (at 12:30 PM ET) and the NASCAR Cup Series race (at 4:00 PM ET). All of Sunday’s events will be broadcast on FS1.

According to Racing Insights, this will be the first time that all three of NASCAR’s National Series will be in competition on the same day at the same track. Four previous times, all three series have been in action on the same day, but never have they all done so at the same track.
