NASCAR starting lineup at Daytona: Joey Logano on pole as lightning cancels qualifying

Bad weather caused trouble at Daytona International Speedway on Friday, as lightning forced Monster Energy NASCAR Cup qualifying to be canceled.

That will leave the starting lineup for Saturday’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 set by owner points. Joey Logano will start on the pole, with Kyle Busch beside him on the front row. Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. round out the top five.

Only eight cars had gotten through inspection when lightning forced all activities to be put on hold Friday afternoon. NASCAR then made the decision to cancel qualifying because of time issues, given the Xfinity Series race is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET at Daytona.

It’s not like Logano needed any extra advantage at Daytona. He finished fourth in the Daytona 500 earlier this year, and fourth at Talladega in the other superspeedway race.

The Coke Zero Sugar 400 begins Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
