Cup - Martinsville - Starting grid

29 October 2011

Rain proved a problem from early on Friday at Martinsville Speedway, leading to the loss of the Friday morning practice session and then most of the afternoon track activities.

Rain persisted into Saturday, leading to the washout of Cup qualifying as well. With no Friday practice running order to fall back on, the starting grid for Sunday's Tums Fast Relief 500 was set by car owner points instead.

That puts Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth on the front row of the grid ahead of Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart, with all 12 Chase contenders on the front six rows.

As they were unable to make a qualifying run, Dennis Setzer and Derrike Cope did not make the 43-car starting grid.
