Race moved to Saturday afternoon
MADISON, Ill. -- A NASCAR trucks race has been postponed because of a power failure at Gateway International Raceway outside St. Louis.
The race was moved to Saturday at 12:30 Central time. Lights went out in and around the 1.25-mile oval at 7:55 p.m., 23 minutes before the scheduled start of the 200-mile race.
After a 1 hour, 39-minute wait, officials decided to postpone the race.
Kevin Harvick, who has won two of three trucks races this season, took the pole position in qualifying early in the day, the first trucks pole of his career.
