Persistent rain, and the forecast for more of it, forced NASCAR to cancel all of Friday’s on-track activity at Charlotte Motor Speedway, including the NASCAR XFINITY Series Chase Round of 12 finale.

The Drive for the Cure 300 will now run Sunday at 11 a.m. ET, broadcast on NBCSN.

The starting lineup for Sunday’s rescheduled race will be determined by the XFINITY Series rule book, which sets the field by fastest-to-slowest practice speeds from both of Thursday’s sessions. During final practice, Kyle Larson turned the fastest practice lap (185.198 mph) of the day and will start on the pole.

Erik Jones, who currently sits outside the top 8 cut-off line for advancement into the next round, will start second on Sunday.

Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bank of America 500 — the first race in the Chase’s Round of 12 — remains scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
