Rain cancels qualifying in Brooklyn, Mich.

BROOKLYN, Mich., June 13 (UPI) -- Rain washed out most of Friday's qualifying runs for Sunday's LifeLock 400 Sprint Cup auto race in Brooklyn, Mich.

Eleven drivers made their qualifying runs when the rains came, but by NASCAR rule, if all drivers have not completed their laps the starting grid is based on owner points.

Points leader Kyle Busch starts the race from the pole position at the Michigan International Speedway.

He is joined on the front row by Jeff Burton, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Carl Edwards making up row two.

Denny Hamlin rounded out the top five, followed in order by Jimmie Johnson, Greg Biffle, Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne and Kevin Harvick.

Qualifying was rained out hours after NASCAR president Mike Helton ordered drivers to stop airing their complaints about the cars being used by NASCAR this season, with two complaints being the heat of the vehicles and bumpy racetracks.
