Stewart had the fastest lap, of 123.143mph, among 37 cars who managed to put in a run in qualifying before heavy rain halted the process. Officials decided to cancel the qualifying and, as per the NASCAR rule book, use owner's points to set up the grid.

Jimmie Johnson will therefore start from second, while Greg Biffle and Rusty Wallace will take the second row of the grid.
