Rain Washes Out NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Qualifying At Watkins Glen

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (Aug. 10, 2007) ¿ Rain shortened NASCAR NEXTEL Cup practice Friday, then washed out qualifying for this weekend's Centurion Boats at The Glen, forcing officials to use the owner points to determine the starting lineup.

Kurt Busch, fresh off his dominating Pocono victory, will start 13th in his Miller Lite Dodge Avenger for the season's final road course race. Teammate Ryan Newman will go off 15th in his Kodak Dodge Avenger on the 2.45-mile road course.

Barring inclement weather, Busch and Newman will have two practice sessions Saturday. The first session is scheduled from 10:30-11:20 a.m., with Happy Hour set for 1:50-2:50 p.m. EDT.

Sunday's 90-lap race begins at 2 p.m. ESPN and MRN Radio will broadcast the event beginning at 1 p.m. EDT.
