Persistent rain at Pocono Raceway forced NASCAR to cancel all of Friday's track activities, including qualifying. Since the first practice session was washed out, the starting field for Sunday's 400-mile race at Pocono was determined by the current owner point standings in the Sprint Cup Series with Jimmie Johnson awarded the pole position. Carl Edwards will start alongside Johnson on the front row. Clint Bowyer will roll off third, followed by Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick. Live coverage of the Party in the Poconos 400 begins at Noon tomorrow on AM 1590 and FM 95.5.
A week from Sunday, the Sprint Cup focus will be on the Irish Hills and Michigan International Speedway for the Quicken Loans 400 on Father’s Day at MIS.
