Starting lineup for NASCAR Cup championship race at Miami

Parker Kligerman climbs in the NASCAR race simulator to preview the Cup Series championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

It’s not unusual to have a starting lineup set by the NASCAR rule book and owner points if situations like weather preclude qualifying from taking place.

But it’s a rarity when the starting lineup is set due to qualifying being rained out – and without even one lap of practice being turned beforehand.

That’s what happened Friday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Rain washed out several segments of the day, including both NASCAR Cup practice sessions.

The Championship 4 drivers -- Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., and Kyle Busch -- will start the race in the first four positions at the front of the pack.

Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400 championship race will be televised live at 3 p.m. ET on NBC.
