MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Rainy weather in southern Virginia
forced cancellation of this afternoon's pole qualifying session for
Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Martinsville. That means they'll set
the field by the points standings, giving Jimmie Johnson the inside
of row one.

Notoriously poor qualifier Jeff Burton got a break when rain
washed out all on-track activities, giving him the second spot on
the starting grid. Johnson holds a 69-point lead over Burton headed into the sixth of 10 races in NASCAR's Chase for the Cup.
