DOVER, Del. — The final Sprint Cup practice for the Citizen Soldier 400 at Dover International Speedway was washed out Saturday.

Rain also affected the first Sprint Cup practice on the 1-mile oval, shortening a scheduled 55-minute session to 40 minutes.

Jeff Gordon was fastest in the first session.

Points leader Brad Keselowski will start on the pole position in Sunday’s race. The lineup was set by the standings because qualifying was rained out Friday.
