200 postponed due to power outage

Due to an electricity outage, the 200 Truck Series race at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Ill., has been rescheduled to Saturday at 1:30 p.m. ET. The race will be broadcast live on SPEED.

Friday's scheduled event was called because of the length of time needed to make repairs to a blown transformer, which disrupted power at the track and the surrounding area, according to a press release issued by Gateway International Raceway. The electricity went out shortly before drivers were to enter their vehicles on pit road, causing a delay of nearly two hours before the decision was made to postpone the race.

Kevin Harvick won the pole position for the 200 in Friday's qualifying session with a lap time of 33.752 seconds. This marks his first pole in the Truck Series.

The postponement sets up a doubleheader of NASCAR racing at Gateway on Saturday. In addition to the Camping World Truck Series, the Nationwide Series will take to the track at 8 p.m. ET for the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250. Green flag is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET. The Nationwide race will air on ESPN2.

Fans who have tickets for the 200 will be allowed to use those tickets to attend the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250, and vice versa.
