Christopher, Brunnhoelzl on front row for race

BRISTOL, Tenn. -- The rain arrived just as cars had hit the track and lasted just long enough to force NASCAR and track officials to cancel qualifying for the UNOH Perfect Storm 150 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The starting lineup was set in accordance to the rule book, which means NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour points leader Ted Christopher will start in the pole position. He'll be joined on the front row by NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour points leader George Brunnhoelzl III. Christopher was fastest in two of the three practice sessions.

Todd Szegedy and Andy Seuss will make up the second row for the race, which is scheduled to go green at 6:09 p.m., and air on SPEED on a delayed basis at 7 p.m. Ryan Preece and Brian Loftin will be in the third row, followed by Donny Lia and Frank Fleming, and Rowan Pennink and L.W. Miller. Lia had the fastest time overall in practice.

Track and NASCAR officials agreed to start all 40 entrants. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Ryan Newman and Kasey Kahne will start 38th and 39th, respectively.
