A persistent rain shower would result in NASCAR Nationwide Series qualifying for the ToyotaCare 250 being rained out. As a result, the starting line-up would be set based on Thursday’s practice session.

Brian Scott will lead the field to the green flag behind the wheel of his No. 2 Shore Lodge Chevrolet after setting a quick time of 22.120 seconds in practice. Scott dominated last year’s fall event before losing the race late in the going after an ill-timed caution and a controversial restart where he felt Brad Keselowski jumped. Coming into the weekend, Scott said he was still mad about the incident and feels he is coming into this weekend with a chip on his shoulder.

Rookie Dylan Kwasniewski will start second as he is looking for a solid finish tonight following some rookie struggles in the first seven races of the 2014 season. Ryan Blaney will start third, followed by Chase Elliott and Trevor Bayne. Elliott is looking for his third straight win in a row after scoring his first career win at Texas, followed by a win at Darlington. Elliott also comes into this weekend as the points leader.

Regan Smith will start sixth, followed by Chris Buescher, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Landon Cassil. Rookie Ty Dillon will start 11th, followed by Daniel Suarez who is making his first start this weekend with Joe Gibbs Racing. Elliott Sadler will start 13th, followed by Kyle Larson and James Buescher.

The race was scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. EST, but has been delayed due to rain. Stay tuned to ESPN News for further updates.
