What’s Happening?

The remainder of Saturday’s Wright Brand 250 was postponed to Sunday at 11:30 a.m. due to inclement weather. After the opening 81 laps, rain hit North Wilkesboro Speedway and never left. Lightning strikes were reported all around the speedway, and a monsoon of rain followed after the race was red-flagged. Conditions were so bad that trucks were floating on pit road, and the track experienced power outages.

The race will resume with Ty Majeski in the lead after 81 laps were completed. Majeski won stage one of the race, after using pit strategy to get to the lead for his third stage win of the season.

In addition, NASCAR has canceled both heat races for the 2024 All-Star race. With no heat races, the starting lineup will follow the rule book, meaning Joey Logano will start from the pole position, with Darlington winner Brad Keselowski starting alongside. The All-Star race is still scheduled for 5:30 p.m. for the open and 8 p.m. for the main event.

Rain has plagued the track all weekend, resulting in Friday’s track activations being postponed to Saturday and the cancellation of Truck qualifying.
