Kevin Harvick will start the 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup from the pole position after qualifying for the Chase’s opening race at Chicagoland Speedway was canceled because of rain.

Also rained out was the Camping World Truck Race that was scheduled for Friday evening.

Harvick earned the Coors Light Pole position for Sunday’s MyAFibRisk.com 400 (3 p.m. ET on NBCSN) by having posted the fastest lap during opening practice.

Joey Logano will start on the outside of the front row, after running 187.911 mph in practice. With Brad Keselowski third quickest and Martin Truex Jr. fourth, Chase drivers claimed the top four starting spots and six of the top seven.

“First off,” Harvick said, “I’m just most proud of my team for having a fast race car and coming to the track and having a plan and doing all the things that they did to pay attention to the weather and put a lot of emphasis on trying to lay a fast lap down, just like everybody else, to get a good starting position with the way that the weather was.”
