Lucas Oil 225 postponed until Saturday night
Chicagoland Truck Series race will be run at 7 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 2 JOLIET, Ill. -- Friday night's Lucas Oil 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race was postponed by rain. The race, stop No. 15 of 22 for the series, was moved to Saturday evening at 7 p.m. ET, broadcast on FOX Sports 2. Showers which hit the Joliet area earlier in the day washed out Truck Series qualifying, as well as qualifying for Sprint Cup teams and practice for the Nationwide Series. Sprint Cup teams were able to complete their one scheduled practice without interruption. Truck Series teams completed two practices sessions Thursday, allowing NASCAR officials to determine Saturday night's starting lineup based on combined speeds. Points leader Johnny Sauter will start on the pole, with Brennan Newberry in the No. 2 spot. Jeb Burton, former series champion Austin Dillon and Ryan Blaney round out the top five. Earlier this year, two Truck Series events (at Martinsville, Va., and Bristol, Tenn.) were run a day later than originally scheduled due to inclement weather.

Carl Edwards: Still 'crazy' fast, sets SUV speed record
BUY TICKETS: See the races at Kansas When a winning Rolex Grand-Am Sports Car Series and American Le Mans Series driver tells Carl Edwards he just did something "crazy," that carries some weight. Craig Stanton, a champion road racer and regular test driver for Toyota Racing Development, and Edwards got a Toyota Land Cruiser (heavily modified, of course) up above 230 mph at the Mojave Air and Space Port in California. Crazy really is the only word for it. "We just did something pretty crazy. We drove an SUV over 230 mph. But I'm telling you, at 225 mph the thing was wandering a little bit, and trying to keep my foot in it," Edwards says. Edwards gives credit to his driving partner after joking before the test run that he really didn't ask Stanton enough questions before agreeing to the driving task. "Craig Stanton said, 'No matter what, keep your foot in it, and we got 230 mph,' " Edwards explained after the run. "It's an unofficial record, but I think it's safe to say it's the fastest SUV on the planet." You can watch the record unfold in the video below. What's next for the driver who stepped away from the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series after the 2016 season? "I got about 1,800 acres of soybeans to plant, but that's about it for right now," Edwards told Tom Jensen of Fox Sports.com.
