The start of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has been delayed by persistent rain in the Daytona Beach area.

The green-flag time for the NextEra Energy Resources 250 had been bumped up earlier in the day to 7:33 p.m. ET to create a slightly bigger window in case of rain. The track was not ready when that time came, however.

Pre-race ceremonies are set to start with the Invocation and National Anthem at 8:10 p.m. ET. FOX Sports 1 reports that the race will begin at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Ben Kennedy is set to start on the pole position for the race because of his fast practice time. Qualifying was rained out earlier in the day.
