Rain washes out all track activity Friday for All-Star race

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) – Rain washed out all track activity Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which will now try to cram it’s All-Star weekend into one day.

The steady showers forced NASCAR to call off the scheduled Sprint Showdown, a race that will send five drivers not already qualified for the All-Star race, into the main event. The Truck Series race also was postponed.

Both events were rescheduled for early Saturday, with the $1 million All-Star Race still scheduled to go off in the evening. NASCAR set the showdown field by points.

The lack of track time Friday could be problematic for many race teams. NASCAR only announced the format for the all-star race on May 6, and the rules were not given to teams until earlier this week.
