Sprint Cup – Il maltempo annulla le qualifiche, Larson in Pole

STP 500 - Practice

Niente qualifiche al Richmond International Raceway per la Toyota Owners 400, nona prova della NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 2014. Il maltempo e le previsioni meteo decisamente infauste hanno costretto gli organizzatori a cancellare la sessione di prove ufficiali e la griglia di partenza della gara in programma, meteo permettendo, per domani notte con bandiera verde alle 1:14 italiane, è stata decisa dai tempi della prima sessione di prove libere.

Dalla pole scatterà quindi per la prima volta in carriera il rookie Kyle Larson, al volante della Chevrolet SS #42 del team Ganassi, affiancato da Brad Keselowski. Seconda fila per Clint Bowyer e Kasey Kahne. Il vincitore di Darlington Kevin Harvick  scatterà dalla quinta piazza, mentre il leader della classifica Jeff Gordon dovrà recuperare dal 25esimo posto.

Hanno mancato la qualificazione Dave Blaney e Michael McDowell.

Stay Tuned!
