MARTINSVILLE, Va. - Rain washed out qualifying Friday for the Goody's Fast Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway and the line-up for Sunday's first race of the new Sprint Cup car spoiler era will be set by points.

A band of showers hit the track early Friday afternoon and never left forcing officials to pull the plug on the session. It was the first time qualifying has been rained out this season.

By virtue of the rule book Sunday's race will be set by owner points which puts Kevin Harvick on the pole. He'll be flanked by Matt Kenseth.

“It is good to take advantage of that and this place, I’ve started in the back many times and been lapped many times, and you struggle all day trying to stay on the lead lap, so, hopefully, if you start up front and don’t make mistakes and keep the track position, it can be an advantage here to get a decent finish," Kenseth said."

Jimmie Johnson, Greg Biffle and Tony Stewart will round out the first five starters.

Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Paul Menard and Kyle Busch complete the first ten.

Casey Mears, Terry Cook, Johnny Sauter and Aric Almirola failed to make the starting field.

Sunday's Goody's Fast Pain Relief 500 is slated for a 1:15 p.m. ET green flag,
