After rain reduced tracked time for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Thursday at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, NASCAR opted to cancel Friday's qualifying session for the series in favor of additional practice time to prepare for Friday evening's Lucas Oil 200. As a result, the starting grid for the race was set based on truck owner points, putting the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota, driven at Dover by owner Kyle Busch, on the pole. Truck Series driver points leader Matt Crafton will start next to Busch on the front row.

Red Horse Racing teammates Timothy Peters and German Quiroga will start third and fourth, sharing the second row at the drop of the green flag. The No. 19 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford, driven this weekend by Tyler Reddick, is the only non-Toyota truck slated to start in the top-three row, starting fifth. Reddick will be joined in the third row by Crafton's ThorSport Racing teammate Johnny Sauter.

Starting seventh through 10th will be John Hunter Nemechek, Ron Hornaday Jr., Ben Rhodes and Ben Kennedy. Only 35 trucks were on the entry list for the Lucas Oil 200. With a full truck field requiring 36 trucks, Friday's race will be one truck shy of a full field and all who entered will be able to start the race.
