The Nascar All Star Showdown qualifying got underway on Friday, but with only four cars left to qualify the rain came. Nascar waited but eventually had to cancel the session along with the All Star Race qualifying due to the Truck race that was scheduled Friday night.

David Ragan and Max Papis will be the two drivers who will benefit and be on pole in the qualifying races as they go off the qualifying draw. Several drivers including Juan Montoya who was on pole at the time and fastest in practice did'nt want to see. Jeff Burton was currently second but these drivers along with all others will have those times scratched and start off how they drawed in qualifying.

The Showdown races are only 20 laps each so if you don't win your race you must hope you get voted in on the fan vote. Several drivers including Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle, Jeff Burton, Marcos Ambrose, Elliott Sadler and Martin Truex Jr will have to get a win in there Showdown race to get into the All Star event with only three drivers advancing the two winners and the fan vote.

The All Star Showdown qualifying races along with the Sprint All Star Race can be seen at 7pm on Saturday only on Speed.
