Nationwide race and Cup qualifying rained out Saturday at Talladega

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- NASCAR has canceled all track activity at Talladega Superspeedway because of threats of severe weather.

The Nationwide Series race scheduled for Saturday will now be held Sunday following the Sprint Cup Series race. It's the second consecutive weekend that NASCAR will attempt a doubleheader.

Rain last weekend in Texas washed out both Cup and Nationwide events, and they were run back-to-back on Monday. It totaled 801 miles of racing for the drivers who compete in both series.

Qualifying for Talladega's Cup race was canceled, and the field for Sunday's race will be set by owner points.
