The Nascar Sprint Cup Series Coke Zero 400 qualifying has been cancelled due to rain after twelve cars made qualifying attempts the rain showers moved in and delayed qualifying but being as the track is over two miles, it does take several hours to qualify and then time to dry the track so Nascar cancelled qualifying. The Nascar Nationwide Series is scheduled to race on Friday night as well in the Subway Jalapeno 250 at Daytona. Brad Keselowski scored the pole earlier on Friday in qualifying. Tonight will be the debut for the new COT car and Dale Earnhardt Jr running the #3 Wrangler Chevy.

Kevin Harvick will now start from pole as the the field is set by the rule book. Jimmie Johnson will lineup second and is on baby watch with the impending arrival of his first child. Aric Almirola will be on standby this weekend at Daytona in case Johnson would have to get out of the Lowes 48 Chevy.

The Coke Zero 400 can be seen live from Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night starting at 6:30pm ET with Countdown To Green, with the Coke Zero 400 following. Here is the starting lineup for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.
