Corey Heim won Friday night’s rain-delayed and rain-shortened NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway.

The race was called at 11:48 p.m. ET after 124 of the 200 laps had been run. The start of the race was delayed more than two hours and teams started on wet weather tires.

The victory is Heim’s first of the season and third in 26 career series starts.

Kyle Busch finished second. He has one win and two runner-up finishes in three series starts this season. Zane Smith was third, followed by Ty Majeski and Tanner Gray.

The start of the race was delayed more than two hours by lightning and rain. NASCAR ordered teams to start the race on wet weather tires. NASCAR called for a competition caution on Lap 28 so teams could change to slick tires with the track dry at that point.
