No Darlington Raceway in 2012 for truck series

NASCAR's trucks won't return to Darlington Raceway next season, but the departure apparently has nothing to do with Rockingham Speedway in North Carolina.

Darlington spokesman Jake Harris said Wednesday that while the Sprint Cup and Nationwide series would run on Mother's Day weekend next season, the Camping World Truck Series would not. Harris said the track worked with the truck series to find a useable date. Harris said Darlington would seek to bring the trucks back, if possible, in 2013.

The truck series leaving was not connected to the series bringing NASCAR racing back to Rockingham, which at one time was Darlington's sister track at International Speedway Corp.
