NEWTON IOWA- JUNE 16 Ross Chastain driver of the #44 TruNorth Paul Jr Designs Chevrolet celebrates with the checkered flag after winning the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series M&M's 200 Presented by Casey's General Store at Iowa Speedway

"NASCAR and Iowa Speedway have made a decision to postpone tonight's NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race until tomorrow", said Iowa Speedway President David Hyatt.

Iowa Speedway will host a NASCAR doubleheader for the first time on Sunday, after thunderstorms forced the postponement of the M&M's 200 presented by Casey's General Stores. As a result of new rules introduced beginning with the 2019 season, Chastain was subsequently disqualified as the race victor and relegated to the last-place finishing position and points.

"The height sticks have warning yellows in them and reds, and it was right off of all of them, so unfortunately it was extremely low, " Moran said. Chastain's team has until noon Monday to appeal the decision.

Finally, roughly one hour after the scheduled green flag, NASCAR officials pulled the plug on the day, setting up a back-to-back race day for fans - with the NASCAR Xfinity Series CircuitCity.com 250 presented by Tamrac slated to begin just after 5:30 p.m. ET.

"For the integrity of the sport", Moffitt said, "It is the right thing". "If I was in Ross's shoes, I wouldn't be too thrilled about it".

The last time a racer was disqualified was back in 1960 when Emmanuel Zervakis had used an oversized fuel tank and was then evicted from the Wilson Speedway race in North Carolina.

Fans shrug off rain to honor Stanley Cup champion Blues
Coach Craig Berube told the crowd at the rally that he's happy for the city and fans, but most of all, he's happy for his players. Louis Blues player and Hall of Fame member Brett Hull rides in the Blues' NHL hockey Stanley Cup victory parade.

Winning teams found in violation of the rules in previous seasons were penalized with post-race fines, point deductions and/or suspensions.

In addition to the race win, Moffitt earns the $50,000 bonus for winning the second race of the Triple Truck Challenge.

He couldn't be located for an immediate comment after the disqualification was announced.

Brett Moffitt, the defending series champion, finished second on his hometown track.

"I went from drinking my sorrows away to being happy", Moffitt told The Associated Press.

Chastain led the final 141 laps to clinch his second win in four races - but his first since he switched his championship aspirations from the Xfinity Series to the trucks a few weeks ago.
