Rain washes out Dover qualifying
Kenseth to start from pole
A hard, steady rain at Dover International Speedway made Matt Kenseth's life easier - and Kevin Harvick's challenge even more difficult than it otherwise might have been. With a massive East Coast storm forcing cancellation of all of Friday's track activity at the Monster Mile, including NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying, Kenseth will start on the pole for Sunday’s AAA 400, the elimination race for the Challenger Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
Westbrook Earns Petit LeMans Pole In Wet
by Steven Cole Smith
As you look at the Friday qualifying times for the Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda 10-hour endurance race on Saturday, don't expect to be immediately impressed by the speeds. Rain, shifting back and forth between "light" and "drizzle" never stopped long enough to establish any sort of dry line. But looking at the water running across the Road Atlanta track in some places, and standing water in others, it's impressive that the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship drivers managed to log the times they did.

Close F1 and IndyCar Cockpits, Save Lives
by Ethan Bregman
Justin Wilson, my friend, my colleague, the man with whom I first stood on top of an IndyCar podium, is dead. His death last month was preventable. We in the racing industry had the technology and ability to prevent his death and we chose not to. In the 1950s, our engineering capabilities were such that racing cars would destruct on impact. They became cages of flaming death. The cars had no seatbelts and open cockpits, since a driver’s best hope for survival in a crash was a prayer to be thrown clear of the wreckage.
