Rain canceled Saturday’s qualifying session for the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. As a result, the 43-car field for Sunday’s 160-lap event around the 2.5-mile oval was set by taking the fastest lap each driver posted during Friday’s first practice session, per the NASCAR rulebook.
Danica Patrick, driver of the No. 10 GoDaddy Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), will start 28th. Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet for SHR, will start 29th. Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/Ducks Unlimited Chevrolet SS for SHR, will start 32nd.
