HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- NASCAR's season-ending truck race, the Ford 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, was postponed Friday night because of rain.

The race was scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m. EST Saturday.

NASCAR officials made several attempts to start the race, and the trucks ran 12 laps under caution until scattered showers prevented a green-flag start.

In the championship standings, Ted Musgrave leads Dennis Setzer by 58 points heading into the season finale.
