Boris Said and two others were poised to make the race, but steady rain forced NASCAR officials to cancel the qualifying session with 14 cars left to make runs. NASCAR couldn't postpone qualifying much longer because of the Busch Series race scheduled to start later in the day. As it turns out that race was scratched as well due to the rain and will be run Saturday morning.
