A Hurricane that may or may not threaten this weekend’s NASCAR activities at Dover International Speedway had at least some impact Friday.  Heavy rains washed out all activity Friday at Dover and NASCAR was forced to set the field via the rulebook. That gave Kenseth, who leads the Chase standings, the pole for Sunday’s AAA 400.

“I think we all would have liked to get on the track today and get some practice,” Kenseth said. “I know there are some things we wanted to work on and try to improve from the spring for this race. I think everybody wanted to get on the track. I think it’s one of the advantages of leading the points – obviously if it rains you get a good starting spot and pit stall. Glad we’re starting in the front, but still would have liked the track time.”

Kenseth could have used the track time. He was forced out early in the spring race with mechanical issues and finished 39th MORE>>>
