Edwards gets pole position after rain washes out Talladega qualifying

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- Rain has washed out qualifying for Sunday's race at Talladega Superspeedway.

The field was set based on practice times from Friday's first session, and Carl Edwards was fastest to earn the pole in his Roush Fenway Racing Ford.

Martin Truex Jr. will start second, followed by Marcos Ambrose and Joey Logano. Ryan Newman will start and Matt Kenseth sixth.

Denny Hamlin will be seventh in his first race since missing four with a compression fracture in a vertebra in his lower back. He's planning to start the race but get out of his car at some point and let Brian Vickers take over for him.

Hendrick Motorsports drivers Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne round out the top 10.
