NASCAR’s first visit to the First State this year is underway – and Friday there’s a full schedule on the Monster Mile.

Among the highlights is qualifying for Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup “AAA 400 Drive for Autism.”  The battle for pole position in that race is set for just before 4 Friday afternoon.

And that’s followed by the first race of the tripleheader weekend - the Camping World Truck Series “Bar Harbor 200”.

That’s scheduled to get the Green flag at 5:30 pm.  Johnny Sauter is the points leader heading into the race and has finished in the top 10 in his last four starts in Dover.
