LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — NASCAR is set for a tripleheader of racing at Pocono Raceway from three national series today.

NASCAR said it's the first time three NASCAR National Series races will be raced on the same day at the same track. It will be the fifth time three NASCAR National Series races will be run on the same day but those were at different tracks.

Rain washed out the Truck Series race Saturday in what was already a packed schedule. Pocono is the site of a Cup Series twin bill, with one race Saturday, one today, and the second race comes with a twist. The field for today's race will be set by inverting the lead-lap finishers from race No. 1.

The Truck Series was scheduled for Saturday and the second-tier Xfinity Series was scheduled for today.

The rainout forced the Truck Series to run at 8:30 a.m. today CDT, followed by 225 miles of Xfinity racing and a 350-mile Cup race.
