Saturday night’s NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway was postponed due to weather until Sunday at 11 a.m. CT / noon ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Chandler Smith will be on the pole, as the starting lineup was set up, per the rule book, by owner’s points, since Saturday’s qualifying session also was rained out.

The command to start the engines will come at 12:03 p.m. ET Sunday.

Smith piloted the fastest car overall in practice, clocking with a best lap time of 23.154 seconds. Sheldon Creed ran fastest in the final practice, turning in a top lap of 23.458 seconds on the racy 7/8-mile oval.

The postponement turns Sunday’s Father’s Day slate into a full day of racing.

Qualifying for the CircuitCity.com 250 Xfinity Series race will begin at 2:05 p.m. ET with the race to follow at 5:30 p.m. ET as scheduled.
