2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series RichmondQualifying for the myAFibRisk.com 400 Sprint Cup Series race at Chicagoland Speedway was canceled due to weather/rain. The starting lineup was set by the rule book.

RAIN IS WIPING OUT QUALIFYING, BUT YOU WILL STILL START ON THE FRONT ROW. “I would rather have been first but I feel good about that. I was hoping we would qualify because I thought we had a shot at the pole, but I will take second, that is a good consolation.”

WHAT ABOUT THIS TRACK DO YOU LIKE? “I like fast race tracks. Fast bumpy race tracks seem to be a little better for Penske for some reason. It seems like the bumps have always been good for us. Kentucky and here they have been good to us over the years.”

YOU WILL HAVE TRACK POSITION, AT LEAST TO START THE RACE. “Track position is key. This first round is all about clicking off good finishes, which is what it is all about. A nice start here will really start that and we are off to a nice start, starting on the front row.”
