Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth the duration of Saturday thanking Mother-Nature, as they benefited the most from the precipitation plagued Martinsville Speedway.

The Roush Fenway Racing teammates, both known for struggling at the paperclip half-mile, will lead the field to green Sunday after rain washed out all track activities Friday and qualifying on Saturday. Per NASCAR rulebook, the starting lineup will be set via owner’s points.
