Qualifying for Saturday’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Wright Brand 250 at North Wilkesboro Speedway has officially been canceled due to persistent rain on Saturday morning at the 0.625-mile historic racing facility.

As a result, the starting lineup for Saturday’s race will be set by the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series rule book. The NASCAR Metric Fomula, which set the qualifying order for Saturday’s qualifying session, is what will be used to set the starting lineup for the Wright Brand 250.

Christian Eckes, the driver of the No. 19 McAnally-Hilgemann Racing Chevrolet Silverado will inherit the pole position for the event by way of the formula. Nick Sanchez will start alongside Eckes in the No. 2 Rev Racing Chevrolet Silverado.

Ross Chastain, who won last weekend’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series event at Darlington Raceway, will start from third in the No. 45 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet, and he’ll be joined by Ty Majeski in the second row.

Majeski’s No. 98 ThorSport Racing Ford F-150 was one of two trucks that had the hood fly up on it in the opening moments of NASCAR Truck Series practice on Friday. Stewart Friesen was the other.

Taylor Gray, Ben Rhodes, Chase Purdy, Tanner Gray, Grant Enfinger, and Ty Dillon will round out the top-10 starters in Saturday’s race.

Brenden “Butterbean” Queen, who was fastest in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series practice, will start mired back in the 26th starting position.

Aric Almirola, who was looking to make the first NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start of the season for Hattori Racing Enterprises, will be the lone DNQ as the No. 16 truck had no owner points heading into the race weekend.

  1. Let Hattori put Aric in the 16 again for another race to make up for this, and also.. let him be in that truck for next year’s NW, because it was stupid to not make the show, one of the part time drivers should had withdrawn and had Aric make the show.., whoever decided to have more than 36 entires in this race should be fired , qualifying should had happened yesterday instead, why the hell did they had to schedule it for Saturday, it screwed Aric over, Hattori deserves to file a lawsuit against NASCAR for this BS clown show for not letting Aric race the 16 Tundra at NW
