NASCAR: Open Qualifying Cancelled, Kirk Shelmerdine on Pole

David YeazellSenior Analyst IOctober 11, 2016

Weird things can happen at any given time. Today at Lowes Motor Speedway, it got really weird.

America's most wanted decided to do a piece on how easy it is to get fake credentials. Then, open qualifying for the NASCAR All-Star race was cancelled due to weather.

Since this is a non-points race, the race lineup is determined by qualifying draw.

Kirk Shelmerdine and Carl Long drew positions No. 1 and No. 2.

Shelmerdine will get the pole award, but his crash in early practice will cause him to have to go to the back of the line, which will move Carl Long into the pole position when the race starts, and David Stremme to the outside position.

Fake credentials and a wrecked car on the pole—turn one should be a very busy area tomorrow night.
