JOLIET, Ill. -- Afternoon thundershowers soaked Chicagoland Speedway on Thursday, forcing cancellation of qualifying for Saturday night's LifeLock.com 400 Sprint Cup race.
Accordingly, the field was set according to the NASCAR rulebook, with the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Kyle Busch starting from the pole. Dale Earnhardt Jr., who passed Jeff Burton for the second spot in the Cup championship standings last Saturday at Daytona, will take the green flag from the outside of the front row.
