Still Raining At Martinsville
The rain continues here at Martinsville Speedway, and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice scheduled from 8:00-10:30 AM ET has now been cancelled. The forecast calls for gradual clearing, with rain ending by late morning. Track drying is underway at this moment, with jet dryers circling the half-mile oval, and the starting grid for Sunday’s TUMS Fast Relief 500 will now be set by points with championship leader Carl Edwards on the pole. Today’s revised schedule shows a pair of Sprint Cup Series practice sessions from 9:15-10 AM and noon to 1:25 PM ET. The Camping World Truck Series schedule is currently unchanged, with qualifying at 10:40 AM and the green flag set to fly just after 2 PM.
