Rain wipes out Xfinity qualifying, final Cup practice

Rain at Michigan International Speedway has wiped out Saturday’s final Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice.

The preceding Xfinity Series qualifying session was also canceled after a rain delay. The lineup was set according to the the NASCAR rule book for this afternoon’s race, meaning Kyle Busch will start from the pole. Paul Menard will also start on the front row.

NASCAR.com reports the Toyota Tundra track-drying team has 14 units, nine jet dryers and three vacuums (two track vacuums and one Elgin Sweeper) on hand to get the track ready for racing at 1:30 p.m. ET, although the threat of additional weather remains.
