HAMPTON, Ga. - Rain Friday night washed out pole qualifying for today's Aaron's 312 Busch race and Sunday's Winston Cup NAPA 500 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The starting lineups for the races were set by the car owner standings.

Today's Aaron's 312 (1 p.m., TNT) will have points leader Greg Biffle on the pole.

As the Winston Cup points leader, Tony Stewart inherited the pole position for Sunday's main event (12:30 p.m., NBC-Ch. 26). He was second-quickest during the only practice session earlier in the day at 190.365 mph.

Bill Elliott was the fastest in practice at 190.955 mph, but his 11th-place position in the point standings means he will start in the sixth row.
