Rain Friday afternoon has forced NASCAR officials to cancel the rest of the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) DRIVE4COPD 300 qualifying at Daytona International Speedway.

Under the new qualifying procedures, it was series Sunoco Rookie of the Year (ROTY) contender, Dylan Kwasniewski, with a qualifying lap speed of 192.078 mph, capturing his first career pole by winning the 21 Means 21 Pole Award.

Kwasniewski, with his pole,  also became the first rookie to win a pole at Daytona since Rusty Wallace did it in 1985; as well as, becoming the first rookie to win a pole in his debut in the series since Scott Speed did it in 2009.

Starting on the outside pole to start second with a qualifying lap speed of 192.074 mph, will be Kwasniewski’s Turner Scott Motorsports teammate Kyle Larson, and they will be followed by Danica Patrick (192.033 mph) starting third,  with Kyle Busch and Elliott Sadler (with the identical speed of 191.620) will start fourth and fifth respectively.

Rounding out the top-ten starting positions will be Matt Kenseth (191.563 mph) claiming sixth, Jamie Dick (190.787) seventh, Jeff Green (190.783) eighth, Johnny Sauter (190.739) ninth and David Starr (190.722) starting tenth.
