1393805305000-harvick-gallery-introQualifying on Friday for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) myAFibRisk.com 400 at Chicagoland Speedway was canceled due to rain, and the starting lineup will be based upon the NASCAR rule book – practice session speeds/owners points and attempts made.

Leading the field to the drop of the green flag on Sunday will be the defending series champion, Kevin Harvick, and he will be followed by Joey Logano starting second, Brad Keselowski third, Martin Truex Jr. fourth and Austin Dillon starts fifth.

Rounding out the top-10 starting positions will be Ryan Newman starting from sixth, Kyle Busch seventh, Kasey Kahne eighth, Kurt Busch ninth and Jeff Gordon will start 10th.

Failing to make the 43-car field and going home were Ryan Blaney, Michael McDowell and Travis Kvapil

On Saturday, the qualified teams will have two more practice sessions starting with an early afternoon session from 1:30 p.m. – 2:25 p.m. ET on NBCSN, and then their “Happy Hour” (final) practice from 4:30 p.m. – 5:20 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
