NEWTON, Iowa (AP) The NASCAR Truck series race at Iowa Speedway has been postponed until Sunday because of inclement weather.

The sport's organizing body made the call Saturday after repeated thunderstorms and lightning strikes in central Iowa left the short track too soaked for racing.

Qualifying was canceled as well, so the field for Sunday's start will be set by owner's points. Sixteen-year-old Chandler Smith will start from the pole in his series debut in the Kyle Busch Motorsports No. 51 truck, followed by Grant Enfinger, Stewart Friesen and Matt Crafton.
