Points leader Kyle Larson will start on the pole for Sunday’s Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway after qualifying was canceled Friday because of rain.

With more rain in the forecast for the weekend, series officials elected to cancel qualifying so Cup teams could practice Friday afternoon.

The lineup is set based on driver owner points via the rulebook. Larson will be joined on the front row by Chase Elliott. Martin Truex Jr. starts third and is followed by Brad Keselowski and his Team Penske teammate Joey Logano.

Due to struggles this season that have put them deeper in the points, Dale Earnhardt Jr. starts 20th and Matt Kenseth starts 22nd.
