LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) --
It's fast cars in a fast city going nowhere fast this morning.
Practice for this weekend's NASCAR races was rained out Friday.
Fans who turned up expecting to see speeding cars are instead enjoying the booths across the compound as the drivers wait for their chance to practice.
According to a story at nascar.com
, track-drying efforts were beginning to gain traction until the skies opened again at 1 p.m., scrapping all Sprint Cup activity for the day, including pole qualifying.
In the same article, it says Las Vegas marks the final week that last season’s points would be used to determine the race lineup, meaning defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski will start first in Sunday's Kobalt Tools 400.
The top 36 starters will be determined by last year’s owner’s points, with the remainder of the field set by owners’ points or qualifying attempts this season.
