DARLINGTON, S.C. -- With inclement weather causing the postponement of Friday's on-track activity, Saturday's schedule at Darlington Raceway was altered as well.
Among the changes was the cancellation of qualifying, and the starting grid has been set based on owner points.
Jimmie Johnson will lead his Hendrick Motorsports teammates to the Southern 500 green flag inside the top 10 in ninth. Just behind him in the next row will be Chase Elliott, starting 11th.
Jeff Gordon -- driving the No. 88 Nationwide Chevrolet SS for Dale Earnhardt Jr., who will miss the remainder of the 2016 season -- will start Sunday's event from the 15th position.
Kasey Kahne will roll off the grid 18th.
The race is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sunday and will be broadcast on NBC in addition to MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
