Today’s NASCAR race heads to the familiar Martinsville speedway, but features a different set of drivers than audiences may have been expecting. The Xfinity Nationwide Series is on hiatus this weekend, as the stock car racing circuit gives the daytime Saturday slot to the Camping World Truck Series race, the Kroger 250. It has an afternoon start time and airs on TV channel that most viewers will have to hunt for, but is also available as a live stream online option.
That means the NASCAR Xfinity Series leaderboard is frozen this week, keeping Ty Dillon on the top of the heap and Chris Buescher five points behind him. Instead the action will be between Tyler Reddick, who leads the Camping World Series in points, and Matt Crafton, who is just two points behind him, with Erik Jones seven points off the pace. Martinsville is a historic short track NASCAR track in Virginia measuring just over half a mile long, making for tight racing and friction in the action.
Today’s Kroger 250 NASCAR Truck race has a start time schedule of 2:30pm eastern time and airs on TV channel Fox Sports 1 (FS1). The race is also being made available as a live stream online.
