SPARTA, Ky. (AP) — The NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway has been postponed until Sunday because of rain. Dale Earnhardt Jr. will start from the pole.
Earnhardt broke the track’s speed record, clocking 183.636 mph to wrest the mark from Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson. Earnhardt’s speed was nearly 2 mph faster than the mark Johnson set last June.
Carl Edwards starts from the outside front in the No. 99 Ford. Johnson settled for third with Kyle Busch fourth in a Toyota.
It was the circuit’s first postponement since last year’s season-opening Daytona 500.
