Rain on Friday washed out qualifying for Sunday’s Chase-opening race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet. As a result, top-seeded Kyle Busch will start the race from the pole.

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver has won four races in 2016 and is the defending Sprint Cup champion.

Brad Keselowski, also a four-race winner this year and a former Cup champ, will start on the outside of the front row as the 16-driver, 10-race playoff begins.
