Martin Truex Jr. will start on the pole for Monday’s Cup race at Martinsville Speedway after qualifying was canceled by rain and snow Saturday.

Snow postponed the Cup race to 2 p.m. ET Monday. It will follow the Truck race, which will resume at 11 a.m. ET Monday.

“It’s definitely a big advantage to start out front,” Truex said. “First pit box obviously, everyone knows it’s a big deal here and that’s where you want to be so you get that clean stall in and out and not get torn up on pit road.”

The lineup was set by car owner points.

Kyle Busch will join Truex on the front row.

Row 2 will feature Team Penske’s Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski. Teammate Ryan Blaney starts fifth.
