JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- The start of Sunday's race at Chicagoland
Speedway has been delayed because of rain.
It was drizzling when the track opened for the first race in the
Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, and the forecast does not
look promising for the race to be completed Sunday.
Matt Kenseth will start from the pole when the race does begin,
and there are six Chase drivers starting in the top 10. Kevin
Harvick was the lowest qualifying Chase driver at 30th.
This is the second time in three weeks the race has been
disrupted by rain. The Sept. 4 race at Atlanta was delayed by two
days by heavy rains. When the event did go off, it was stopped or
slowed several times by brief showers.
