NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series returns to action on Saturday with its second road race of the season. Ben Rhodes won the NextEra Energy 250 at the Daytona Road Course, and the circuit now heads to Austin, Texas and the Circuit of the Americas. The Truck Series will run the Toyota Tundra 225 on Saturday and it will be preceded by qualifying.
This is notable because there has been limited qualifying across all of NASCAR this season. This is the third track at which NASCAR has held qualifying, and it’s only the second round of qualifying for the Truck Series. The other instance was Pinty’s Truck Race on Dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway. Otherwise, starting lineups have been determined through a performance-metric formula that factors in the last race and season-long performance.
Truck Series qualifying is scheduled for 9:05 a.m. ET on Saturday, May 22 on FS2, with the race to follow at 1 p.m. ET on FS1. Both events will be available via live stream on FOX.com/live and through the Bally Sports app. If you don’t have a cable login to access either, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream qualifying.
The starting lineup for Saturday’s Truck Series race will be determined by speed on a qualifying lap. The faster a truck runs the lap, the better the starting position. If a driver has to change cars or make changes to their car after qualifying, they will be dropped to the back of the starting lineup.
