ANTIGONISH, N.S -- DJ Kennington's fast time in practice will mean he'll start on the pole for Saturday night's Bumper to Bumper 300 at Riverside International Speedway after weather washed out qualifying.

Because the series got in a practice session, the rule book dictates the starting lineup is set by practice speeds. That means Kennington, who has two previous wins at Riverside in 2010 and 2012, will lead the field to green. 

Kevin Lacroix will lineup second. Championship points leader Alex Labbe and local favorite Donald Chisholm will make up the second row.

Defending race winner Cayden Lapcevich will start fifth. 

Donald Theetge, Mark Dilley, LP Dumoulin, Adam Martin and Alex Tagliani round out the top 10. 

Due to a rain delay the green flag for the Bumper to Bumper 300 will drop at 1 p.m on Sunday.
