NASCAR Martinsville Starting Lineup: Rain Sets Qualifying Order For Chase Race

Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth would like to high-five Mother Nature.

The Roush Fenway Racing teammates, neither known for having much success at Martinsville Speedway, will start on the front row for Sunday's crucial NASCAR Chase race thanks to persistent rain which canceled qualifying.

When qualifying is rained out and practice has not yet taken place, NASCAR sets the starting lineup according to owner points. So as the Sprint Cup Series points leader, Edwards is now the pole-sitter.

He also gets to select the crucial No. 1 pit stall at the half-mile flat track.

Here's the starting lineup for Sunday's NASCAR Martinsville race, which should look incredibly similar to the point standings:

  1. Carl Edwards
