Long  Pond,  PA (Sports  Network) -  Persistent rain  at Pocono Raceway forced NASCAR to cancel all of Friday's track activities, including qualifying. 

Since  the first  practice  session was  washed out,  the  starting field  for Sunday's  400-mile  race at Pocono  was determined  by the current owner point standings  in the Sprint Cup Series. Therefore, Jimmie Johnson was awarded the pole position. Carl Edwards will start alongside Johnson on the front row. 

Clint Bowyer will roll off third, followed by Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick. 

Starting  sixth  through 10th will  be: Dale  Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne, Kyle Busch, Paul Menard and Brad Keselowski, the defending series champion. 

All 43 drivers who are entered for this race made the starting field. 

Teams  are scheduled to  practice for a total of two hours on Saturday morning and early afternoon. The weather forecast for the area on that day calls for a 60  percent chance  rain. Sunday's  forecast  is much  better with  just a  20 percent chance of thunderstorms during the afternoon.
