Truex Jr. to Start 3rd for Brickyard 400 Field set on owner points after rain cancels on-track activities
September 8, 2018
Martin Truex Jr. will line up the No. 78 Auto-Owners Insurance Toyota third for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway after persistent rain forced the cancellation of today’s practice and qualifying.
Truex will start on the inside of Row 2 based on the Furniture Row Racing team’s position on the current owner point standings.
The top 10 positions are Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Truex, Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson, Clint Bowyer, Ryan Blaney and Denny Hamlin.
The starting time for the race has change. Live coverage of the 160-lap, 400-mile race begins Sunday at 11 a.m. MT (1 p.m. ET) on NBCSN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90 and IMS Radio.
