For the second straight week, rain has plagued NASCAR, forcing them to cancel qualifying.

The cancellation comes as a shift of NASCAR’s focus from qualifying to making sure Cup teams get a chance to practice their new low-downforce rules package for this weekend’s race. NASCAR will use the time formerly slated for qualifying for a 90-minute Cup series practice session once the racing surface is dry.
