Rain washes out Cup qualifying

Kyle+Busch+NASCAR+Kansas+Preview+9xbOg-bpl5LlRain forced NASCAR officials to cancel the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) qualifying session Friday at Chicagoland Speedway, placing Kyle Busch – who was the fastest in practice – on the “pole” for Sunday’s MyAFibStory.com 400.

Sharing the front row with Busch to start second will be Ryan Newman, and they will be followed by Carl Edwards starting third, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. fourth and Matt Kenseth starts fifth.

Rounding out the top-ten starting positions will be Clint Bowyer starting from sixth, Jimmie Johnson seventh, Jeff Gordon eighth, Paul Menard ninth and series Rookie of the Year (ROTY) candidate, Kyle Larson, will start tenth.

With only 43-drivers attempting to fill the 43-car field, no one failed to make the starting lineup.

Tomorrow, the teams will have two more practice sessions beginning with a morning session from 11:00 am – 11:50 am (ET) and “Happy Hour” (final) practice from 2:00 pm – 2:50 pm (ET).

The 14th annual MyAFibStory.com 400 is set to get underway around 2:20 pm (ET) Sunday afternoon and ESPN will provide television coverage beginning with their NASCAR Countdown pre-race show at 1:00 pm (ET).
